Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Limited (CTIL) was founded in 2012 as a joint venture between Vodafone and Telefónica to manage the network sites for both companies including the consolidation of sites to create a single grid. We generate efficiencies in cell site deployment and the operation of the network infrastructure.
By agreeing to consolidate their network infrastructure Vodafone and Telefónica have increased their portfolio of sites, which gives them a greater choice of locations and means they can strengthen the quality of their network coverage. As a result, the mobile industry is also focusing on operating networks as efficiently as possible, which may mean long term changes to CTIL’s cell site lease strategies.
CTIL plays a critical role in ensuring that Vodafone and Telefónica have the right sites they need to create their ultimate destination grid. When we complete the current infrastructure Programme known as the Beacon Programme we will continue to be responsible for maintaining and managing the infrastructure assets and sites across the UK.
With headquarters in the heart of telecoms territory just off the M4 in Theale, Berkshire we work throughout the UK with an extensive network of landlords and other selected partners, ensuring that the sites we require are available and that the infrastructure is built or upgraded to support new mobile radio requirements. Our landlord relationships are of critical importance to us and we are committed to ensuring that we create strong commercial partnerships that provide mutual benefit.
Our in-depth industry expertise means that we are able to acquire the right sites, at the right costs, in the right locations. Thanks to our expert knowledge, Vodafone and Telefónica are able to strengthen their coverage, capacity and network speeds across cities, towns and rural locations.
Our industry leading knowledge and the work we do with Vodafone and Telefónica and other trusted partners gives us the perfect credentials to be responsible for all elements of infrastructure from design standards, legal and planning consents to the management of the build or upgrade of individual site infrastructure. This ensures each location is ready to receive either Vodafone or Telefónica radio transmission equipment. We also manage the decommissioning of sites that are no longer required within the network, which is an important factor in driving efficiencies and managing costs.
We deliver to the highest standards
"We have thousands of sites to maintain ensuring that these assets are available to support live transmission requirements"
"Safety is of paramount importance and we are committed to delivering the highest quality standards in all that we do"
"With our commitment to standards and ISO accreditations, quality is not just something we talk about but something we commit to living in all that we do"
We are always keen to hear from both existing and prospective landlords who are interested in exploring opportunities for partnership.
