distance between two towers of different service providers

Can any one give me authentic and sure shot information on the minimum distance between towers of two different service providers.
Is there any such criteria

The distance between two towers of different service provider is rougly around 200m-300m.

I think it mainly depends on the range that each tower provides around itself. Telecom engineers may want to add details to this discussion !!

At some places where constructing a tower is too expensive like in the city centre, one service provider can actually "rent" an existing tower from a competitor. This saves costs overall. Basically both share one tower 😀

As for two different towers, Im not sure yet. I dont think it matters.. theoretically, an overlapping of towers (hence cell zones) should provide better coverage, just that different service providers would use different code accesses. hmm..

i think the gap is minimum.beacause for the tower of one network signal is encrypted so the signal of other tower can`t overlap with each other
