U.S. Cellular is a wireless carrier based out of Chicago, Illinois. They are the 5th largest wireless provider in the United States with approximately 4,700,000 users. If you currently have a US Cellular tower on your property, there are a few things you need to know, and the experts at Vertical Consultants are here to fill you in.
The first thing all U.S. Cellular landlords should be aware of is that U.S. Cellular routinely uses the services of Md7 to lower their cell tower agreement obligations and to lock in undervalued leases for years to come. If Md7 or U.S. Cellular contacts you, be very leery of signing any document they may send. Your cell tower lease agreement is likely already severely undervalued, and companies like Md7 make their living off bullying landowners into devaluing their leases even further.
The second important point for landowners with U.S. Cellular towers to know is that U.S. Cellular has pulled back their coverage in many markets, most notably in areas around St. Louis and Chicago. In 2013, U.S. Cellular sold 595 towers to Vertical Bridge Holdings for $159,000,000. Additionally, U.S. Cellular has been selling their spectrum capabilities in those areas to other wireless carriers. The result of these sales and trends has led to instability in the value of U.S. Cellular tower sites.
