'Sitefinder' Mobile Phone Base Station Database

'Sitefinder' Mobile Phone Base Station Database

Ofcom has confirmed today that the Sitefinder database has updated information in the database.

Sitefinder is provided by Ofcom and holds information on cell sites, who operates them, what power they transmit at (and the max allowable) and what frequencies.

The operators refresh the data on a quarterly basis.

Currently updates are occuring from O2, Orange, Vodafone, 3, but not T-Mobile. There is also data from Tetra (Police radio).

Sitefinder is a useful resource but the operators have complained that making too much information available is giving away competitive info.
