If you seek to bring the benefits of wireless network infrastructure to your school and the greater community, you may be tempted to contact one of the major carriers directly. After all, you’d think that kind of proactivity would be rewarded, right? However, the cell tower and wireless communications industry is nuanced and complex. Unless you’re well-versed in the logistics and economics of that marketplace, you may not only find yourself in over your head, you could be the victim of a deal that isn’t in your best interest.
In the simplest of terms, Arcadia Towers is an advocate for wireless for schools. We will protect the school system from being taken advantage of by the carrier. Let’s be clear: we aren’t insinuating that the big carriers are driven by nefarious motives. But the fact remains that school logistics and telecommunications logistics are two very different worlds. When two complex systems that don’t speak the same language come together, the likelihood of miscommunication is high. A translator is needed.
That’s where Arcadia Towers comes in.
When you contact us, you are our client, and it becomes our job to bring our wireless connectivity expertise to bear to ensure that your school district gets the best possible deal.
When your school system or municipality attempts to market its location to a carrier, we recognize that your aim is to secure solid access to high-speed service for students and the community. To that end, you may be eager to accept any long-term offer a carrier may provide. Conversely, you may proactively seek out one carrier to the exclusion of others, potentially overlooking an opportunity.
Arcadia Towers has the ability to “match-make” your location to the specific coverage needs of any of the major carriers due to our proprietary technologies. Because of our wide angle of view, working with us increases the likelihood of one of the carriers investigating your location as a potential site.
Arcadia Towers is one of the very few wireless tower developers that deeply understand the logistics and policy concerns of installing 5g towers in schools. We understand the order of play, how to work with school boards, how to interface with the public and parents groups, and how to arrange the complicated financial specifics unique to municipal organizations. You won’t see us “learning on your time” during our engagement.
If your school system is currently investigating the feasibility of marketing your location to the major carriers, we encourage you to contact us first. Let us walk you through a few successful case studies where we’ve successfully brought reliable connectivity and high-speed internet access to learning environments — including public schools. We’ll also ease your mind with our deep understanding of educational system dynamics. You’ll be glad you did.
