Supreme Court judgment handed down in high-profile telecoms case

Judgment today has been given in the first ever telecoms case to reach the Supreme Court. Jonathan Seitler KC and John McGhee KC acted for telecoms operators, On Tower and Cornerstone respectively.  The court accepted their argument that an operator is not barred from applying for rights under the telecoms code just because it is already in occupation of a site and reversed findings to the contrary in the Upper Tribunal and Court of Appeal.  The judgment is a significant boost for operators and will make it much easier for them to secure the agreements required for the roll out of 5G services.

The full judgment can be downloaded here.
