Reston, VA (PRWEB) March 09, 2015
Wireless tower owner and developer, Milestone Communications announced an agreement with Greenville County School District in South Carolina to market over 100 potential cell tower sites to telecommunications companies. Under the terms of the agreement, Milestone will add Greenville County school properties to its portfolio of sites being marketed to and considered by Wireless communications carriers as possible sites for cell towers and other infrastructure upgrades.
The agreement represents an opportunity for Greenville, the most populous county in South Carolina, to realize vast wireless infrastructure improvements and the potential for millions of dollars in school district revenue over the next decade and beyond.
“We look forward to working with Milestone to identify and market school sites for tower installations,” said Jeff Knotts, Executive Director of Finance for Greenville County Schools. “They bring extensive experience with tower installations, community outreach, and tower designs that blend into surrounding environments.”
The agreement marks Milestone’s first marketing venture into the Carolinas, after developing similar solutions for schools and other government landowners in the Mid-Atlantic region for more than a decade. “We’re very pleased to expand into South Carolina,” said Milestone CEO, Len Forkas. “We look forward to helping providers fill coverage gaps, customers gain improved access, and school systems receive needed revenue—all while ensuring that communities are informed and involved in the process.”
Greenville County sits in the northwest corner of South Carolina and is home to more than 475,000 people. The Greenville County School District is the largest in the state—and ranked 49th largest district in the United States—with 14 high schools, 18 middle schools, and 50 elementary schools.
Founded in 2000, Milestone Communications is the leading developer of wireless towers in partnership with school and government landowners, enabling them to direct millions of dollars annually to educational and extracurricular budgets. Milestone solves network coverage priorities for the wireless industry efficiently and reliably by working closely with local communities to provide solutions that are aesthetically and functionally optimized for their environments.
