Network Infrastructure: Towers

Always looking up

Wireless and broadcast carriers need a partner who can help them evolve their networks, whether for 5G, relocating post-repack, or the transition to new technologies. Vertical Bridge is the largest private owner and master-lease resource of broadband towers in the country, and we own the nation’s largest portfolio of broadcast towers. Our multi-tenant, long-term leasing model ensures that carriers always have new site options and the ability to connect with their customers.

With more than 320,000 owned and master-leased sites across the country, Vertical Bridge offers wireless, broadcasters and other telecom companies the locations needed to reach their customers. We own and master-lease over 10,000 towers, making us the largest private owner of towers in the country. Our broadcast tower portfolio is also the largest and, on average, the tallest, in the U.S.

Our Leasing and Operations Teams have an unrivaled knowledge of communication infrastructure and are committed to providing an efficient, seamless process. We offer long-term leases designed to benefit everyone involved, and our pre-negotiated master lease agreements give carriers the ease and speed they’re looking for when it comes to deploying their network.
