Have you been contacted in 2019 by an AT&T site acquisition specialist about having an AT&T 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.
That's right. In 2019 AT&T is pushing 90-year cell tower leases. And they are 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
= 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. They may even pop open a bottle of fine champagne each time to celebrate.
AT&T needs to build a lot more cell sites, cell towers and 5G small cells to keep up with the demand for coverage and capacity.
Imagine AT&T’s 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 pizza shrinks, and eventually you need to call for another pizza delivery. The same holds true for AT&T subscribers. The more AT&T customers there are added to the network, the smaller the amount of bandwidth that there is available, and the greater the need for more capacity 5G cellular sites. Lots of additional equipment and modifications need to be added to their existing towers as well, and landlords can easily be stuck trying to figure what their site are worth, and wonder if they are getting a fair deal from AT&T?

If you’ve been approached by AT&T about them leasing space from you for the construction of a cell tower or rooftop antenna cell site lease, we’d like to help you with your cell phone tower lease review and AT&T cell site lease negotiations. We review and negotiate ATT cell tower lease agreements and assist building and land owners in maximizing the profitability of their rooftop AT&T cell sites.
Additionally, there are several firms that regularly contact property owners with cell tower ground leases or rooftop antenna leases formerly with Cingular or now with AT&T to "guarantee" their rent and protect them from "tower consolidation" or to "optimize their leases". This is nothing short of snake-oil sales. If you are being harassed and need help, let us know.
Talk to one of our experts. Contact us about your ATT Cell Tower lease agreement.
