Carrier Lease Optimization

Why is At&T sending letters to their landlord trying to scare them to reduce their rent and or take a buyout. The merger with T-Mobile should have something to do with their capcity, however, I am curious if that is their plan.

T-Mobile rent optimization

In some cases this is just an attempt to scare people into lowering their cell site rental rates, in other cases since the networks are mature and additional capacity sites may have been built around the site you have, you cell site may not be as valuable to their network as it once was. In these cases T-Mobile might relocate to a site down the street from your property if it is cheaper to lease.

If the merger is approved with T-Mobile and AT&T this will only help them once they are able to add frequencies to sites or areas where T-Mobile does not already provide coverage. While carriers do need to maintain most of their sites, there is a site that they are willing to relocate your site to a less expensive location.

To make this determination, a study would need to be completed taking into account site coverage, area traffic, current rental rates, availability of competing sites, zoning codes and construction development costs of a new cell tower.

Give us a call we can certainly help you with this, and we would be able to provide you of a probability of whether your site would be moved or not.
