What We Do
By “Building Better Wireless®“, SBA generates revenue from two primary businesses:
We lease antenna space on our multi-tenant towers and other structures to a variety of wireless service providers under long-term lease contracts.
We can assist wireless service providers and operators in developing their own networks through site acquisition, zoning, construction and equipment installation.
In addition, SBA works with property owners to strategically develop and monetize the wireless infrastructure potential of their real estate assets.
Nonstop growth in the number of ...mobile users, devices, apps, and especially the demand for mobile video will continue to create the need for higher speed wireless services and more bandwidth. Telecommunication carriers are increasing network capacity to meet the demands of mobile customers by building out or densifying their networks through the implementation of cell towers, antenna placements on buildings and rooftops, DAS and small cells – this is exactly what we do at SBA – Your Connections Start Here.TM
