The 3rd Inning of 5G Deployment is Over - Now What?

Join Wade Sarver (Wade2Wireless), Nick Del Deo (Moffett Nathanson), and yours truly for a roundtable discussion on the future of 5G in the US.
After an aggressive start to deployment with small cells, midband spectrum, and DISH rapidly deploying a 5G network from scratch, the industry came to an abrupt slow-down in the last few months on 5G builds.Join us as we discuss the following topics:

The First 5 Years of 5G
– What has worked?
– What hasn’t?
– And What is the Jury Still Out on?

The Downturn of Late 2023
– Layoffs and Slowdowns
– DISH Before and After June 2023 Deadline
– 5G From the Consumer and Enterprise Perspective

Going Forward
– Next Phase of Deployment
– Wade, Nick, and Ken’s Winners and Losers

What Does 2022 Look Like for Tower Owners

…and more.

DISH- Expectations of Their Wireless Network Build in 2022

  • What are we collectively seeing regarding the level and timing of DISH network development activity across the US?
  • What does the near-term future hold for DISH? Will they meet their FCC-mandated coverage and population requirements?
  • What can we tell about DISH’s business plan based upon the development work done to date?
  • What can tower owners and landowners expect from DISH leasing activity?

And much more!

Wade has a deep background on the engineering side of wireless and is at the forefront of some of the ongoing 5G deployments in the US.

  • What has worked for the industry, and what hasn’t?
  • What are the surprises from 5G deployments to date?
  • What changes in carrier 5G deployment do Ken and Wade expect to see going forward?
  • What will CBRS bring to the table?

Steel In The Air 2021 Predictions For Wireless

This webinar is a discussion between Ken Schmidt and Wade Sarver where they address their thoughts on the following questions:

  • Can lease buyout and tower sales multiples continue to increase?
  • What type of activity can we expect from DISH? (and where)
  • When might we start seeing Sprint lease terminations?
  • What does 5G look like at the end of 2021?
  • Which companies will have a great 2021?

What’s Next For Cell Tower And Cell Site Landowners Now That T-mobile And Sprint Have Merged?

In this seminar, we examine what requirements each company has and how that might impact cell tower and the underlying cell site leases. Here is what you should expect to learn from this seminar:
  • 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.

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?
