Featured In The Wall Street Journal: “People of 5G”

Saratoga Springs, New York is seeing an increase in the number of stealth towers throughout the city. Although, this type of cell tower is not limited to this city, as they are becoming the norm across the region, and even the country. Telecom and tower companies are hoping to blend their new towers in with the surrounding environment, as more and more towers are needed in order to keep up with the increasing demand of wireless services by consumers. According to Oneida Daily Dispatch, “Cellphone towers are getting harder to spot around Saratoga Springs, as cellphone companies try to match the towers with surrounding scenery. This one located at the Lincoln Baths is disguised as a smokestack.”

With the need for more towers to accommodate the growing reliance on cell phones and the convenience of data access will come the need for property or structures to place their equipment upon. If you are approached by a telecom or tower company proposing to build a tower on your property, contact us with any questions prior to signing any agreement with them. Vertical Consultants has worked with all types of landowners who are being paid below-market value for the use of their property. The primary reason for this is the lack of information and representation provided for these entities. Ample information and representation from a true landowner advocate are key factors these industries need in order to optimize the use of their properties by the telecom giants like Verizon.
