Areeba in trouble for phone masts

7 Oct 2005

Mobile phone operator Scancom, which operates under the brand name Areeba, has come under fire from the government over the erection of two mobile phone masts without planning permission. Local inhabitants have complained that the installation is illegal, although Areeba claims that the law ‘allows for the erection of antennas without any permission, as long as the antenna does not exceed a height of six metres’.
