How much is a cell tower lease worth?
Cell tower lease buyouts run about $250,000 cash depending on terms.
*It should be noted that Telus and Bell often share antenna sites in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario, but do not compensate an owner accordingly.
Who owns the cell tower?
I am a property owner. A cellular service provider contacted me regarding a cell tower lease. How can you help?
I manage a building, and the telecom company wants to add more equipment. Should I agree?
If a service provider has approached you to install additional equipment, Antenna Management can perform an antenna lease agreement audit [LINK 1] to determine your options and help you negotiate fair compensation. We also can help you monitor access to your property for free using the QRAccessible System.
I own property. How do I get a cell tower lease?
Currently, cell towers use 4G technology and location of cell towers are determined by their RF engineers. Generally, it is not worthwhile to market a property for 4G. However, 5G is another matter. Over the next five years, cell service providers will switch over to 5G which will carry 90% of cell and internet traffic. Because the 5G network operates on a shorter wavelength than 4G, carriers will need to place antennas 100 meters apart and at every 10 m of elevation. This means that every building with two or more stories is a potential 5G antenna location.

What is a fibre access agreement?
Telecom service providers have been signing FAA with property owners that allow their technicians to free access buildings to rewire the structure for all wireless and internet services under terms that include 24×7 access to everything, no equipment restrictions, exclusive terms, and in perpetuity without offering the property owner any compensation. Never sign a fibre agreement without advice, book an appointment to find out how we can help.
What does 5G integration mean for me and my properties?
The shift to streaming entertainment services, cloud-based applications, and work-from-home arrangements means that accessing the 5G network will soon become a priority for residents, landlords and businesses. Cell service providers expect property owners to install Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) in their buildings to keep up with demand. Building managers will either have to negotiate fibre access agreements with service providers to install the DAS network or establish a proprietary system independently.
