In Haaksbergen, The Netherlands, county officials have prevented provider KPN to install UMTS (3G) antennas in a new mast. The inhabitants of Haaksbergen are strongly against UMTS. The municipality of Haaksbergen right now does not give permits anymore. The KPN mast was placed 4,5 metres away from the site according to the building permit. Haaksbergen says KPN has to move the mast. In The Netherlands at this moment more than 40 municipalities are retaining permits for UMTS masts.
