Message from Kevin F. Donohue, Managing Partner at Tower Genius.

Before we start talking about your Sprint Lease, we would like to take a minute to congratulate PAUL, of ex-Verizon Wireless "Can you hear me now" fame, for jumping ship from Verizon back to Sprint. We wish him well and hoe that none of his royalty checks bounce. Why should Sprint cell tower landlords care about this kind of nonsense? Well, it's no secret that since the horrible Nextel merger from the good old push-to talk days, Sprint has really been struggling financially. Let's not even bring up Clearwire.
Landlords and property owners who require Sprint Lease assistance should consider talking to Tower Genius about having their Sprint cell tower leases reviewed and negotiated by experts who have formerly leased and built towers for Sprint. While 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 have come and gone, we are holding our breath and keeping our fingers crossed that SoftBank will pull a rabbit out from their hat and as a result of cutting all those wireless bill in half with a chainsaw, that 2017 will FINALLY promise to be an exciting year for Sprint, and one that the wireless industry has been waiting for now several years.
And come it did. Sprint finally started contacting property owners for newly proposed Sprint cell towers and Sprint rooftop cell sites in Q4 of 2017
Since merging with Nextel, Sprint has not been building cell sites. The only Sprint towers and cell sites built were the ones they had to move and relocate due to buildings being condemned for highway projects and cause by eminent domain and the like. This is about to change in a very BIG way in 2018. Sprint can't keep advertising that they will cut your other carrier's cell tower bill in half without improving their network. And the truth is, if Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T need THOUSANDS of new cell site to stay competitive, then so does Sprint. (Aren't you glad the the USA federal government operates off the Sprint Network? LOL!! Gasp!!)
In Los Angeles alone for example, Tower Genius estimates that Sprint needs to add hundreds of new cell sites. And in the New York City Metropolitan Area we have heard from unnamed Sprint insiders (who may or may not have been consuming alcohol at the time) that they need to add between 25% to 35% more cell sites just to keep up with consumer demand. Bottom line is that Sprint either needs to build more cell sites or they are finished.
As we said ad nauseam despite all the pundits who disagreed with us a Sprint merger with a carrier like T-Mobile or AT&T will probably never be approved by the US authorities just as they rejected AT&T 's bid to acquire T-Mobile. American consumers need more choices, not less.
Now that the iPhone is available on the Sprint Network, Sprint has rolled out their 4G LTE network by upgrading existing cell tower and cell sites, and now 5G is coming soon to a city near you.
We anticipate HUNDREDS if not THOUSANDS of landlords to be contacted nationwide by Sprint in the next 1-2 years to lease rooftop cell sites and upgrade their existing network to 5G LTE and for Sprint to construct new cell tower locations and also for Sprint to co-locate on existing cell phone towers owned or managed by SBA Communications, American Tower or Crown Castle.
Either way, Tower Genius can provide landlords with fast efficient and affordable cell tower leasing services:
We are extremely familiar with Sprint's contract, language and terms, and we don't bite. Please talk to us today at 1-888-313-9750 or send us a Sprint Lease Contact Form.
