What we do not do and why we don’t do it

I have been in the wireless tower business since the redistribution and sell off of spectrum by the FCC in 1996. I have seen a generation of RF engineers, site acquisition specialists, and young professionals rise from ground level jobs to positions where they either, own a company, or have control of the direction the company they work for takes. It has been interesting to watch how a people group with a similar knowledge base utilizes that knowledge.

Most of these entrepreneurs have taken their knowledge and experience and utilized it to service and profit from their interaction with the carrier (Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, etc.) in the form of site acquisition companies, RF engineering companies, or even rooftop management slanted towards serving the carrier.

The extreme version of this carrier centric model would be companies like Blackdot Wireless and Md7. These are companies that receive a portion of the rental costs savings they negotiate with building owners, land owners, tower owners, etc. For example if you owned a building several years ago with Sprint on the rooftop, one of these companies might have reached out to you to inform you that, due to Sprint’s acquisition of Nextel, Sprint would no longer need your site…but if you were willing to cut your rent in half, eliminate the escalator, and allow Sprint to install future equipment with no limits, they would be willing to stay on your property for a guaranteed period of at least 3 years.

We work for one person, the property owner. We do not perform site acquisition or any other service for the carrier. Our success is tied to the success of our property owners. If you are considering a wireless rooftop management company please check to see if they work for the carrier in any way.We do not and we have grown organically throughout the hotel industry. We currently manage rooftops for:

  • Hyatt
  • Hyatt Place and Hyatt House
  • Marriott
  • Hilton
  • Sheraton
  • Hudson Advisors
  • Host Hotels

We look forward to having the opportunity to speak with you.
