“Working with CitySwitch means more alternatives to the traditional tower leasing model still followed by many. The traditional model isn’t cost-effective or sustainable,” said Susan Johnson, executive vice president – Global Connections and Supply Chain, AT&T. “This deal is another step in continuing to diversify our suppliers based on site needs, increasing competition in the provision of tower space and exploring new avenues to cut costs.”

“This agreement aligns with AT&T’s commitment to provide customers with better speed, reliability and overall performance. Our macro site build work is also part of our overall plan to deploy mobile 5G and keep up with increasing mobile data usage demand. Mobile data traffic on AT&T’s national wireless network increased more than 360,000% from 2007-2017.” AT&T said in a statement.

“With AT&T’s nationwide FirstNet build project underway and 5G on the horizon, it’s important AT&T addresses its network real estate needs in new and thoughtful ways. We are pleased to play an important role in this now and for many years to come,” said Rob Raville, president and CEO at CitySwitch.
