Cell Phone Frequencies In the early stages of car phones, there was one central antenna tower per city with approximately 25 channels per tower. With so few channels, it limited the number of people who were actually able to rely on the analog network. The term ‘cell phone’ comes from the concept of dividing cities into ‘cells’ to allow reuse of transmission frequencies Now the typical analog cell phone carrier receives about 832 frequencies to use across a city with cells sized at about 10 miles in hexagonal grids.

Cell phone Channels A single cell in an analog phone uses 1/7 of the available channels so that each cell has a unique set of frequencies and no collisions.

With 1/7 of the frequencies being used, that allows approximately 56 users per cell at any given time in an analog network
