How Wireless Companies Choose Cell Tower Sites

While the exact techniques used by wireless companies to choose cell tower sites is slightly different for each one, they all use some of the same factors to determine where to put their cellular towers. Here’s a breakdown of some of the major things used by them.

Wireless Infrastructure – The first thing thought about by cellular companies is their overall wireless infrastructure. This basically means the geographic area that they provide wireless services in as well as their ability to give all their subscribers access.

Location of Tower – In order to make sure their coverage is better than competitors, wireless carriers work hard to ensure that large population centers are served by several strategically located cell towers. The location of the tower and how it will help other towers in the area goes a long way in determining whether or not a particular site is chosen.

Network Capacity – When more people start using wireless technology, there’s going to be a need for even more towers to maintain acceptable levels of service everywhere in their network. With higher capacity on their network, more cell tower locations are needed. When usage starts to peak in one area, they may begin looking at sites for additional towers for certain parts of their network.

All About the Price  – Because we’re talking about corporations, you have to remember that cellular companies and wireless carriers are going to want to pay the least amount of money for any single cell tower in their network area. When possible, they may choose one location over another if they have options. This is why having a good negotiator on your side is so important.


The really important question is how you get the wireless companies to choose YOUR land for their next cell tower site. This is where Wireless Property Listings can help.

And the best part is that there’s no work involved on your part. All you have to do is cash the checks at your bank and decide how you want to spend all the extra.
