Mobile phone masts, when powered, allow survivors to use mobile phones to leave messages for those on their Contacts List. Masts are mounted on the roofs of a variety of buildings.

From outside, a mast without power has the following description: There is a mobile-phone mast on the roof of the building. Setting up and fueling a generator inside the building changes the external description to: On the roof of the building, the lights of a mobile-phone mast blink against the sky.

The masts themselves cannot be reached or attacked directly. A mast is disabled when the generator powering it runs out of fuel or is destroyed.

The Game Statistics page has info on what percentage of the network is currently running; presumably, since there are 100 suburbs in Malton, each mast represents one percent of the total network. The current statistics are displayed below.

  • Actual Network Coverage: 25%

Locations

All mast locations have been reported by members of the Wiki community.

The Unofficial Map graphically indicates the locations of buildings with masts.

The Mobile-Phone Mast Information Center has a full list of danger reports, this is a better page is you want to know the status of the buildings, rather than of the masts they contain. The MPM Status Map shows the same information graphically.

To update the status of a mast you should update the Danger Report for the building containing the mast. You can link to the report by clicking the building's name on the sorted list, or by clicking the building's co-ordinates on the map. Change the "mast_status=" line of the danger report according to the definitions provided below. You must sign the report as the timestamp provided in your signature is the same timestamp displayed here to ensure the data is recent.

The following are the working definition for the status chart below:

  • active = Service has been positively confirmed in suburb.
  • nofuel = The presence of a generator has been confirmed, but it is out of fuel.
  • destroyed = The lack of a generator has been confirmed. Fuel and a generator are needed to return the mast to active status.
  • ruined = The mast building is ruined. A toolbox, generator, and fuel will be required to restore the mast to working order.
  • occupied = One or more zombies have taken up residence in the Mast Building. A lot of firepower and maybe some team work will be needed to get the Mast up and running again. Is most likely ruined.
  • inactive = There is no service in the suburb, but for an unknown reason.
  • activeold, nofuelold, destroyedold, ruinedold, occupiedold and inactiveold = Service to the suburb has not been checked in the last 5 days Activeold suburbs are not included in the "mapped active network coverage" at the top of the page.
  • unknown = Service to the suburb has not been checked in the last 10 days. The goal is to have no suburbs in this state

Listen on 27.00 for new status reports. Occasionally tag or pirate-broadcast this url -- http://tinyurl.com/qvew4 -- so that others know to listen and update this list.

At most, a generator fuelling a Phone Mast will last five days from the time of fuelling. All 'active' masts whose timestamp is more than five days old ought to be reclassified as 'activeold.'

Please note that a bot has been created to take care of marking statuses as 'old' or unknown as necessary. This does not prevent you from changing statuses yourself provided that they have passed the proper 5 or 10 day limit.

Multiple Towers

Some suburbs have more than one tower. It is believed that only one tower actually provides network coverage to the suburb, and the other will not, even if powered.

Danversbank has a mast in the Barrow Building and a phantom mast in the Poulet Museum.

Paynterton has a mast in the Smither Building and a phantom mast in the Denning Museum.

Lukinswood has a mast in the Shortman Building and a phantom mast in the Galavin Museum.

Reganbank has a mast in the Lantrowe Building and a phantom mast in the William Museum.

Jensentown has a mast in the MacVicar Building and a phantom mast in the Borland Museum.

Spracklingbank has a mast in the Dobson Motel and a phantom mast in the Mickelson Museum.

Update this section if you find the true/phantom mast situation is reversed, or find another phantom mast.
