As the nation’s largest provider of shared communications infrastructure, we’re working to connect cities and businesses to the data, technology, and wireless services they rely on every day.
Our comprehensive infrastructure portfolio consists of more than 40,000 cell towers, approximately 120,000 on-air or under-contract small cell nodes, and approximately 85,000 route miles of fiber—giving us a presence in every major US market. As the demand for data and information grows, this unique combination of assets will continue to work together to meet the needs of people and businesses.
Our disciplined approach to capital allocation allows us to remain focused on our long-term stability and future success. In January 2014, we officially became a REIT. This conversion marked the alignment of our business structure with our long-term commitment to provide the nation’s wireless carriers with the prime real estate they need to run their networks. Our shared economic model appeals to this customer base, while opening up new opportunities for us to meet the needs of emerging markets like 5G, the internet of things, and smart city technologies that will also require our infrastructure solutions. It’s a convergence that puts us in an ideal position to continue our strong, steady trajectory with new growth opportunities for many years to come.
