Cell Antenna Market Rents in 2017


               What is market rent?

In the next 10 years the average cell site with 30 licensed antennas can gross $15 million to the cell carrier.  The Owner may only receive $150,000.

  3. Amend the lease in mid-term
  4. Allow automatic renewals
  5. Lock rent increases to inflation
  6. Allow carrier to to licence the site to others
  7. Allow unlimited use of site
  8. Allow 24 x 7 access
  9. Indemnify the carrier
  10. Waive assignment rights
  11. Waive permits and inspections
  12. Guarantee environmental costs

What is the impact of these terms?  


Reduced rents.
