I have a cell tower on my property for the past 6 years at $1,500 per month with an increase of 3% per year from T-Mobile. It has been working out well, but now I feel I am in shark infested waters. Unison has been relentless even though I have been being harassed with countless phone calls by the one salesperson. I have asked him to stop calling....so now I just don't answer (Thank God for caller ID). He even invited himself over and when I told him not to bother he still came over ( I know, I know...I should have called police). He is threatening me that my tower will go away unless Unison protects me with 135k for my lease.
I have crunched numbers and talked with my lawyer who say the number is way too low. I have done extensive research on towers disappearing in this area, in this state, and then went nationwide.....NOTHING!
MD7 is sending threatening letters and went so far as to contact my attorney who told them where to go....but the letters keep coming.
T-Mobile is doing some underground cables on my property (with my consent and knowledge due to an unreasonable neighbor). Why would they go through all the expense of putting underground cables to terminate?....it doesn't make sense. I was told more permits are needed to remove a tower and are more expensive to have the tower removed than to put it up. It would take more money than they are paying me to remove everything including the slabs that run several feet below the site.
Even if I consented to Unison or MD7 ( which I won't), wouldn't it cost more to remove the tower to consolidate to another tower? Should I be worried about the tower going away? I am in a popular and heavily populated area and my gut says to ignore them all. What do I do to get rid of them?
