Antenna swap and adding RRU

by Chris
(San Diego, CA)

T-mobile has contacted me saying that they will be swapping 3 antennas and adding 3 RRU to my property and say that because it's a swap, that they aren't required to give a rent increase. The RRU are new, but they say it's allowed under the contract because it's just a radio frequency facility. They're asking me to sign an LOA for them to do construction. Do I really have to let them add equipment and no rent increase even if it's taking up more wall space?

Depends on what lease says

Let's take a look at your lease. What are they permitted to do? Are the antennas like kind or are they double the size? Where are the RRU's going? Just a few thoughts.
