By Steve Kazella, ATT Cell Tower Lease Expert.

Have you been contacted in 2022 by an AT&T site acquisition specialist about having an AT&T or FirstNet Cell Tower built on your property?  Do you have an exist AT&T cell site on your rooftop that is being upgraded to 5G or is expiring soon?

AT&T in years past sold off thousands of it's towers to Crown Castle. AT&T and American Tower Corporation have also been at odds for several years with each other. "Disruptive" companies like Tillman Infrastructure *** have also added to the chaos by trying to poach AT&T from existing managed towers to their own newly proposed cell towers. AT&T leasing representatives have been contacting landlords and property owners with ridiculously stupid leasing terms.

*** WARNING: Think twice about signing a 90 year AT&T cell tower lease agreement.

That's right. Since 2019,  AT&T has been pushing 90-year cell tower leases. We've seen many of them in 2020 & 2021 and don't expect this trend to change in 2022. There 90-year AT&T leasing terms are very easy to miss if you glance over them. They are frequently offering property owners a five (5) year initial leasing term with seventeen (17) that's right , SEVENTEEN additional five-year renewal terms.

1 X 5 = 5 year initial term 17 X 5 = 85 years of renewals  = 90 years

= HEY AT&T, THAT'S  C R A Z Y !!!

And don't think they are going to explain this to you. They love it when property owners sign these terrible cell tower lease terms. They may even pop open a bottle of fine champagne each time to celebrate. 

Bottom Line...
AT&T Needs To Build More Cell Towers to Support FirstNet, But it's Not Your Patriotic Duty to Lease it For Next to Nothing.

In 2022, AT&T is building more cell towers to support the FirstNet Emergency Responder Network. While the AT&T cell tower lease consulting acquisition agent will try to convince you that is your "patriotic duty" as an American taxpayer to support first responders and give AT&T a low rental price on the FirstNet cell tower lease agreement and terms, understand that AT&T makes BILLIONS from their deal with FirstNet. So if you are approached about a FirstNet lease for a cell tower by AT&T, pay very close attention to the FirstNet cell tower lease agreement rate and terms. It's not your patriotic duty to rent them ground space for next 99 years for to nothing and accept an extremely one-sided deal. Enough said.

And besides that, AT&T needs to build a lot more rooftop 5G cell sites, 5G cell towers and 5G small cells to keep up with the demand for coverage and capacity not taking into account anything with FirstNet.

Imagine AT&T’s cell tower signal as a large pizza. Every time someone joins AT&T they use up bandwidth and the bandwidth (coverage area) shrinks surrounding that cell site.  When you are at a party, and more people arrive and grab a slice of pizza, the size of pizza shrinks, and eventually you need to call for Domino's for another pizza delivery. The same holds true for AT&T subscribers. The more AT&T wireless customers there are added to the network and who are located in a certain geographic area, the smaller the amount of bandwidth that there is available around the given AT&T cell tower, and the greater the need there is for more capacity 4G and 5G cellular sites. Lots of additional equipment and modifications need to be added to their existing cell towers as well, and AT&T landlords can easily be stuck trying to figure what their cell site leases are worth, and wonder if they are getting a fair deal from AT&T?

We review and help landlords so they can negotiate great ATT cell tower lease agreements.
