Impact of 5G On Cell Towers and Tower Leases

Carriers are adding 5G to towers, and small cells are still being deployed. This is a webinar on what will happen to cell towers and cell tower leases as a result of changes from 5G. We start with an overview of what 5G is and how it will be deployed. We then examine the upside to tower owners and site owners from 5G modifications. Lastly, we delve into whether terminations of existing leases are possible or probable as a result of small cell deployment.

Questions to be answered include:

  • Will small cells replace towers?
  • Will towers become obsolete?
  • Will 5G improve the value of my tower?
  • Is my lease at risk?

  • What obligations do T-Mobile and DISH have to the FCC and Department of Justice.
  • What we know and what we don’t know about the potential terminations.
  • Which sites are more likely to end up being terminated.
  • Why lease buyout and lease optimization companies will use the merger to encourage the sale or renegotiation of leases.
  • What savvy landowners should or should not do regarding their leases.
