Not sure where this is coming from.  As a tower
owner, these are the concerns we have with
leasing space to WISPS.

1.  Is the WISP going to be around next month.

2.  Who is the WISP going to use for install?

3.  What eqipment is going on the tower.

Any freqency specific stuff is normally covered by our
first in, last out clause.  If we add a customer to the tower
that causes inteference to an existing customer, they need
to fix the problem, otherwise, find another
tower.

Simple....

The bigger problem is not costs. Its understandable that the spot goes to the higher bidder. The problem is the understanding of how to lease tower space when its for unlicensed spectrum apposed to licensed spectrum. The tower guys dominently license to license spectrum holders. To teach them what WISPs needs for use of Unlicensed on the tower, is a long educational process to the tower managers. In Unlicensed you need more than just the channel you are broadcasting on, to maintain future reliabilty and growth.

Hi,

The problem is that cell carriers (at least in my area) pay $500 - $2,000 per month to be on a tower... the same towers that I pay $100 - $250 per month. If you owned the towers, which customer would _you_ rather have? :(

It seems we (people on this list) are always easily dismissed by large tower owners. These dismissals are often in the form of "here, pay this $$$$$! fee up front to deal with us" or "who are you again?" or my favorite and one that was told to me by an American Tower Rep: "we don't deal with WISPs unless they are named Clearwire."

Is WISPA (or Part-15 for that matter) doing anything to negotiate standard or discount leases with these tower owners?

I am not a member of either organization but this sort of thing would definitely make me want to join up in a hurry. I also think that if tower owners were faced with an organized group of people they might cut though some of the BS we face when working out leases.

Just a suggestion,

Exactly.  Crown is a nightmare if you are not a carrier, and
they are doing the assimiliation.

Smaller tower owners will continue to cater to the smaller
companies, the WISPS, and continue to gain their business.

How do you figure? Crown Castle is a nightmare to work with, and Global Signal has worked well with WISPS. I hope Crown Castle takes Global Signal's good sense with the purchase.
