Cell Tower Lease Rates, Location & Sales Database
“Our proprietary Cell Tower Lease Rate, Location, and Sales Database spans all 50 states, as well as parts of Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean, and has grown to encompass over 285,000 cell tower and cell site locations.”
In 1997, we began compiling tower location data from public and private lists across the country. We started with the FCC Antenna Structure Registration Database which can be found on the FCC.gov website. In reviewing the data in the FCC ASR, we found that the FCC did not require the registration of many cell towers nor did it require the registration of individual cell sites on towers or rooftops or other structures like water towers. As a result, we started looking for tower data from many other sources. We pulled all the public tower company databases (which are no longer publicly available), queried smaller tower companies for their data, and started making public records requests for data. We tracked specific tower related news articles and logged the location and lease rate data from the articles.
