Cell Towers | Crown Castle (2024)

Cell towers are known for ushering in the modern mobile phone era, but they are also playing a large role in the future of networks. They are the most established type of communications infrastructure, and are still the most reliable way to deliver critical wireless coverage. That includes voice and data signals, of course, but increasingly, wireless broadband, TV, radio signals and more. Towers are also being used as centralized hubs to communicate with remote networks of transmitters, monitors and other devices—giving them new importance for the future as internet of things (IoT) technologies advance.

With our network of over 40,000 cell towers across the country, we can help find the right solution for your needs. In dense areas, where towers aren’t feasible, we have access to more than 10,000 rooftop sites. We own or have rights for the land under many of our towers—providing us with opportunities to expand beyond our core infrastructure offerings. Whatever your communication needs, we can help bring your business up to speed today, while helping you prepare for tomorrow.

Key benefits.

  • Range: Our towers can broadcast signals over extended ranges—helping you reach nearly every corner of the country.
  • Versatility: As a shared infrastructure provider, a single tower can host a wide range of equipment types—not just antennas.
  • Simplified Operations: As a nationwide infrastructure provider, with one of the largest portfolios of towers, we are dedicated to helping you simplify the process of planning and managing your network—making it easier for you to take advantage of new opportunities.
  • Single Source: With towers in all of the top 100 markets and stretching across 49 states and one US territory, we are a single provider for all connectivity needs. And if your network needs additional capacity to meet demand, we can work to provide complementary solutions such as small cells so you have comprehensive coverage and capacity.
  • Stability: As a successful infrastructure company with a long and stable history, you can count on us to be with you for the long haul. All of our towers are located on land we own or have rights to and, to ensure continuity, they are monitored year-round by our Network Operations Center, and are inspected and reviewed by our technicians and engineers on a regular basis.

Monopole, Lattice and Guyed Towers

  • Include space for antenna arrays and microwave dishes; fed by backhaul coaxial copper or fiber.
  • Also include equipment shelters and ground space, allowing connectivity to fiber and edge data centers.

Rooftop Installations

  • Provide all the same capabilities as monopole, lattice or guyed towers, but in more densely populated areas. They're also ideal for fixed wireless installations.
  • Depending on the building, may not have as much rooftop space available.

Ideal for.

  • Broadcasting any type of wireless signal over large geographic areas.
  • Wireless carriers and cable companies that are looking to extend or fortify their coverage for the last mile of connectivity or across the country.
