Co-Location for Cell Phone Tower Locations? Profitability of your cell phone tower location depends on the number of cellular carriers deploying their antennas on the cell site and also on the terms of the cell tower leases that you negotiate. Additional cell phone antenna towers can also be deployed on rooftops if the space is available and a coverage need exists. City zoning ordinances and municipal codes generally encourage carriers to co-locate on the same structure whenever possible to curtail the construction of too many cell tower sites.
We are Tower Genius, the United State's and Canada's leading independent landlord advocate and cell site lease consulting and lease negotiation consulting firm. We have been helping to lease cell phone tower locations since the inception of wireless telephony. We do not work for carriers or tower companies, only for landlords and property owners. Unfortunately we are not able to attract other carriers to your rooftop or market your site for further development. But there is nothing stopping you from doing that.
If you are an owner of a leased cellular tower location and receiving rental payments for a wireless carrier and have additional ground space and room on the cell tower, there is a possibility that we can help you attract additional carriers and rental income.
Contact Tower Genius about making your cell phone tower locations more profitable. Additionally, we have found that a very substantial number of cell phone tower locations, especially rooftop cell sites, are not in compliance with their lease agreements. We have fond this number to exceed 25% in many cases, especially in the nation's major cities where rooftops are heavily utilized for antenna deployment. With carriers changing names and carriers using subcontractors, real estate managers and construction managers turning over in-house as employees always do, often times the actual cell site installation is not the same as on the plans depicted in your lease agreement.
We regularly find instances of major carriers such as T-Mobile, Verizon Wireless, AT&T and others overstepping the physical boundaries of their defined square footage requirements or having more infrastructure, cabinets, microwave dishes, cable runs or other equipment than they are supposed to have present on site. When we confirm carrier non-compliance, depending on what the Owner's lease stipulates the carrier will have a certain number of days to cure the issue or face lease termination. This gives you a lot of leverage to renegotiate terms and rental price, and why you need to talk to us.
