Counting on U.S. Cell Towers

As we travel from place to place, we might often pass by a cell tower without giving them a second thought. However, a cell tower is not simply just a cell tower. There are a total of 89 tower companies that own over 100 thousand tower builds throughout the U.S.

You might find it unusual to not see carriers like AT&T and Sprint on the chart below. That is due to carriers leasing the cell tower space rather than purchasing them. The amount of cell towers only continues to grow more rapidly. Below you will find a breakdown of the top 10 companies  that own own cell tower in the U.S. with Crown Castle (39,739) leading the way.
