Our team of experts at Vertical Consultants has made it their mission to get all property owners fair value for the use of their land and we are doing just that.

The T-Mobile/MetroPCS merger, announced via both of the companies’ websites, could impact property owners across the country who are engaged in cell tower leases with the aforementioned telecom companies. According to T-Mobile, the combination of the companies will increase customer and revenue scale. MetroPCS indicates this merger will provide a broader, faster, higher capacity 4G network and a clear technology path to one common 4G LTE network.

The companies involved and their respective customers aren’t the only ones affected by the merger; property owners leasing their land for cell tower placement will also be indirectly impacted. Combining T-Mobile and MetroPCS will increase the spectrum available to these companies allowing for faster connectivity and capacity, something that is invaluable to telecom companies. With the anticipation of higher revenues and growth in technology, those leasing their land for telecom placement should receive fair compensation under basic supply and demand principles.

The experts at Vertical Consultants, a Nashville, Tennessee based telecom consulting firm, have found in working with property owners across the country, the opposite is often the case. In spite of advancements and movement within the telecom industry, property owners leasing their land to telecom companies and tower developers are underpaid for telecoms’ use of their land.
Vertical Consultants’ success in negotiating with telecoms to achieve overwhelming increases in cell tower rent revenue and recovering substantial amounts of unpaid cell tower expenses for property owners provides evidence of the disparities between telecoms and property owners. In just over one year, Vertical Consultants recovered over 100 years’ worth of cell tower rent and expenses, collectively, and increased property owners’ cell tower lease rates by an average of 98%.

Hugh Odom, President and Founder of Vertical Consultants states “America’s reliance on wireless connectivity is ever-expanding. Technology will continue to grow, telecoms will continue to need more spectrum and cell tower landlords’ properties will only increase in value. Our team of experts at Vertical Consultants has made it their mission to get all property owners fair value for the use of their land and we are doing just that.”
