According to the front page of the Telegraph the govt has decided to relax the rules governing mast heights and also to allow a lot more changes to masts without requiring planning permission.

Hopefully it will do something to curtail some of the not-spots caused by nimbyism or uncooperative councils.

Is this 5G similar to Verizon's 4G which was just HSDPA and DC-HSDPA masked on phone to display 4G?

I can imagine the taller masts will help LTE-A, whether the Telegraph understand that to be 5G or 4G+ is unknown.

I think the rules are technology agnostic, simply being a relaxing of planning relating to masts.

I also doubt any uk network will play the US fakery game of incorrect descriptors.
