Steel tubes with more than 700mm in diameter are used to install 30m steel monopoles. However, Moscow infrastructure experience does not abide by that tenet. Russian tower companies prefer 28 height monopoles with 351 mm bottom section in Moscow city and only 530мм in suburb. Of course, this approach brings less CAPEX and plot size. Basement occupy only 4 m2 in average. Top swinging in stormy weather has not significant influence to modern microwave transmission and radio coverage. Rod-type monopole shares within up to 4 MNO’s and could take aboard 5G massive MIMO antennas as well.
Painted with blue-gray color they are less conspicuous and more affordable to city deployment due to mounting specialties.
Have you ever see thin monopoles?
