Hey Wireless Industry- This is the Right Way to Request a Cell Tower Modification

cell tower equipment

We regularly review requests from carriers for cell tower lease modifications on our client’s structures and towers.  One of the hurdles we find in doing so is the inconsistency of the information that is provided.  Some site ac vendors waste a significant amount of time sending over ridiculous consent letters for leases that clearly spell out that any changes require an amendment.  Others send over just the construction drawings – forcing us to ask for the structural analysis and spec sheets.  So when one of our clients received the following request from a T-Mobile representative for a equipment mod that was concise and helpful, I thought it warranted calling attention to it.

This email makes it easy to find the appropriate documentation we need to review the site and that I would have otherwise had to ask for in a collocation/modification application.  We will prioritize this request simply because this woman from T-Mobile spent the time to provide a succinct and helpful summary of information.   Kudos to T-Mobile’s agent here!


“I wanted to go ahead and get things rolling with this site…I have received several documents and wanted to start sending them your way for you to process.  I have engaged _____ for all A&E services since they have worked this site in the past for T-Mobile and you will be familiar with their work and format.
