Three ponders multi-billion pound sale of masts 5G

Three is reportedly considering whether to capitalise on the growth recent demand for telecoms infrastructure by selling some of its masts to a third party.

There has been a flood of investments in the sector by private equity firms in recent years because of the predictable, stable revenues promised by assets such as fibre networks and mobile masts. Meanwhile demand for ultrafast broadband and 5G means there is scope for growth.
