TOWER SHARING

PURCHASE AND LEASE BACK / CO-LOCATION MANAGEMENT

FTS can provide MNOs with a purchase and lease back option where we buy mobile towers and related passive infrastructure from operators and lease them back to the carrier. Benefits of this type of strategy include:

FTS can also build sites directly and lease them back to operators for use. Called Build To Lease (B2L), our program is focused on driving costs down over time for our MNO partners. FTS’ B2L model provides MNOs with:

FTS B2L program offers MNOs an alternative solution for new tower builds that provides ongoing operational flexibility similar to a traditional internal ownership model, but without the typical up front capital costs.

CO-LOCATION SITE MANAGEMENT AND LEASE

Upon conclusion of a mutually satisfactory sale/leaseback deal with the MNO(s), FTS would intend to invite other MNOs to consider co-location of cellular equipment and other passive infrastructure on the sites as appropriate and feasible. This would be subject to a number of considerations, such as: (a) operator and market demand; (b) the ability of the site(s) to accommodate additional tenants; and (c) legal requirements that may be applicable.

Site management and lease services include:

  • Asset management: energy and fuel use monitoring and management; site physical and electrical plant management, service, and upkeep; fueling and other maintenance services.
  • Shared services management of infrastructure and cellular sites.
