What other carriers are on the Verizon tower on my property?

by Fred

My siblings and I own a Verizon cell tower lease in southern Indiana. The lease will expire in 9 years. The tower is currently managed by American Tower.

1. How can I tell if there are other carriers on the tower?

2. How can I find out who those carriers are?

3. If there are other carriers, would the equipment that they use be their own equipment or Verizons?

The reason I ask is that the lease agreement states "LESSEE shall have the right to replace, repair, add or otherwise modify its equipment or any portion thereof, whether the equipment is specified or not on any exhibit attached hereto, during the term of this Agreement." So if it's not the LESSEE's equipment (other carrier's equipment) it seems that they don't have the right to install it or maintain it. Am I barking up the wrong tree here?

Great questions Fred.
by: Stephen

With 9 years remaining, American Tower probably wants to extend the lease.

Are you sure that American Tower is only managing it?

We need to take a look at the lease and at the tower itself to figure out what's there.

Count the electrical meters. How many are spinning or labeled?

How many sets of antennas do you see?

How many equipment cabinets, platforms or shelters are there ?

Give us a call to discuss.
