Confirmed on on Bq E4.5 on rc-proposed (r741) the following:

Wifi ON, mobile data ON - network based location does NOT work.
Wifi ON, mobile data OFF - network based location works.
Wifi OFF, mobile data ON - network based location does NOT work.

And there is nothing wrong with my mobile data.

The network based location used to work until some time ago, so this is
definitely a regression. I couldn't find a more appropriate bug for this
so adding to this one.

  Ubuntu Phone is not getting a mobile network cell triangulation

Bug description:

  I think that the mobile network cell triangulation position is not
  working in Ubuntu Phone OS.

  The position should be really fast (~1 - 5") and I'm thinking that
  Ubuntu Phone is waiting for a real GPS position every time.

  A good test could be this:
  - Go to a room, way out of a sky to avoid a real GPS signal.
  - Set WiFi service OFF.
  - Set GPS service ON.
  - Set data connection ON.
  - Go to this website via webbrowser-app: The website will ask you to 
allow access to the current location.
  - Make sure to not have a GPS position cached.

  In a PC or *any* Android you'll see your position immediately.
  Bug: In Ubuntu Phone an error will appears. This error is because the 
 is not working with the cell triangulation network data.

  You can try a lot of apps like Google Maps, OSMTouch, HERE map, uNAV... and a 
fast position from data connection is not happening, unless you be with a WIFI 
  If you try Google Maps in Android, the position will be really fast just with 
data connection.

  Thanks in advance!
