Towers news includes updates on increased carrier activity to support rising data usage, technological upgrades, and new spectrum deployment.

Within our towers news coverage, we also discuss the business model of towers. Specifically, how towers are characterized by recurring revenue, rental escalators, long-term contracts (initial term of 5 to 10 years), high operating leverage / incremental margins, low maintenance capital expenditures and leases to investment-grade counterparties.

Beyond the traditional wireless carriers, our towers news scope also extends to companies that lease space on towers to TV and radio broadcasters, public safety, and Internet of Things providers.
