Why Towers are the key to how we communicate

The chart below illustrates why cell site growth will continue through 2020. Data needs to be mobile and delivered quickly; cell phone towers are the best way to do that. Data usage will grow at a by 50% each year over the next 5 years. AT&T is purchasing Direct TV for one major reason; they want to deliver content (think NFL Sunday Ticket) directly to mobile users. When this happens you will see this chart increase even further upwards. Bottom line is more data equals more cash to the carriers and the Big tower companies like American Tower, SBA Communications and Crown Castle. As a individual tower lease holder this could be a great opportunity to maximize the value of your cell tower lease or rooftop lease. Call Cell Site Capital to help you better understand the value of your cell site location.
