Do you have a US Cellular lease that needs to be reviewed or negotiated? Maybe you didn't know this, but there is a 5th carrier. It's U.S. Cellular. Are you a landlord that has U.S. Cellular as their tenant and you have a cell tower lease that is expiring with the carrier or have they contact you to amend the terms of your lease? US Cellular is a leading wireless carrier providing coverage throughout many major markets in the United States and has a consistent build program and is constantly developing new towers. In fact US Cellular owns and operates over 4,000 of its own macro cell towers. Or experience tells us that for landlords and co-locating carriers they can sometimes be the most difficult carrier to come to terms with. This is just an observation but landlords and property owners should know that when you are negotiating with US Cellular on your own, you need to do your homework and often time get ready for their "take it or leave it" style of negotiations.
We provide landlords and land owners the following services:
When leasing cell sites with US Cellular, smart landlords can rely on Tower Genius' 50+ years of wireless infrastructure and lease consulting experience. We've been involved in the cell tower development, leasing and wireless consulting for quite a long time. Yes, we are wireless dinosaurs so to speak and we are very good at what we do. Our landlord clients get results. Why? We are independent. We do not work for any of the carriers or tower companies and are solely a landlord driven consulting firm.
It's fair to say that we will probably not be on the holiday mailing lists of U.S. Cellular or any other carrier this year on any time in the future, but that's how we like it, and we wouldn't change a thing.
Maybe you have questions about what you consider fair US Cellular cell tower lease rates to be, and the offer you received from US Cellular? Tower Genius' representatives will help you to determine what kind of leverage you have in your negotiation. After we help you determine what the fair market value is we will help you with pricing and terms, which are equally if not more important.
Are you a landlord with a question about your US Cellular cell site lease, lease buyout offer, lease negotiation, lease rate or other US cellular related subject ? Please post your question here on our US Cellular Q&A Blog.
