5G technology is expected to rake in billions of dollars into the telecom industry sooner rather than later. And at the forefront of beneficiaries of these billions are Tower Companies.
5G Tower Companies have a major role to play in the deployment of 5G technology and they are playing that role. The major cell tower companies are going all in on 5G technology, buying and installing 5G infrastructures; making big moves for a big payday.
Here are the major 5G Cell Tower Companies:
1. Crown Castle
Crown Castle owns, operates, and leases towers and other infrastructure for wireless communications. Crown Castle offers significant wireless communications coverage to 92 of the top 100 US markets and to substantially all of the Australian population. Technology is changing the way they interact with the world. They don’t go online anymore. They exist there. Their smartphones and tablets are connected, of course, but soon things like traffic lights, machines, appliances, and autonomous cars will all be online.
They work closely with community members, government officials, and their customers to design and build solutions that meet their unique connectivity needs—from wireless coverage to smart city solutions to custom fiber optic networks. Their solutions are built with the future in mind. They play an important role in tomorrow’s smarter, better-connected communities, while paving the way for new innovations in the way they live, work, and stay safe.
Their infrastructure solutions create important connections that make communities around the country safer, better places to live. But they don’t stop there. They have offices in every major US market and are committed to being responsible members of the communities where they live and work. One of the ways they do this is through their Connected by Good program.
