Locations on bills

On my detailed mobile phone bill it says I made a call 40 kms away from where I was & it was a few times
Does anyone know the kilometre location from a tower?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Locations on bills

The range of a given tower can range depending on the technology used at the tower and local conditions such as weather, trees, hills, those sorts of things.

In ideal conditions it could be anywhere from a couple km in built up city areas with interference to 60km in perfect flat countryside.

As there is so many variables it would depend from tower to tower.
