Thanks for the reply. How do you find out the mast operating frequency? Is this in the public domain?
All 5G in the UK on all networks is running on band n78, which is at 3500 and 3600 MHz. Each operator has a part of this spectrum.
If you are really into this stuff, if you get a rooted Qualcomm modem Android phone (e.g. Pixel, or OnePlus) you can run various apps that can show you what is being received. Unfortunately 5G is tricky to see on these apps, but 2G,3G,4G is easy as they are usable with a PAYG SIM. Easier to look at other people's postings.
The frequencies that the networks use are licensed by the government Office of Communications (Ofcom) whom have only just this week licensed (for £1.3bn !) more frequencies for the mobile networks to use to enhance coverage. Presumably to be used for 5G.
and this enthusiast site by Peter & Jake is awesome at showing the frequencies, known as bands owned by each mobile network operator:
Have a look at some of Peter's YouTube videos as well:
