      Shoresguy, do you have any idea on how much rent German carriers pay to landlords to set up their equipment on top of their buildings?
    • ShoresGuy
      No, I don't but it can't be that much if they have them located so closely together (a couple sites every couple blocks).
    • Andy
      Exactly. If rent was a lot, German carriers would pay a fortune every month in rent in just a single part of town.

      The city rents can get pretty high. In Manhattan for example, most carriers have a site every two blocks or so, and rather than being on the rooftops, the antennas a 12" by 12" patch antennas about 30' above street level. Look for them on building sides next time you are there - I will.

      The rent amounts vary alot, but are usuallay between $1500 and $6000 per month in Manhattan. The higher rents are because the equipment rooms have to be in prime 2nd or 3rd floor office space in Manhattan.

      A rooftop in a more ordinary city should cost $1000 to $3000 per month - again, depnding upon the "primeness" of the space used by the equipment.

      What a waste to put equipment into office space. couldn't they put the equipment somewhere in the basement or so not to waste "prime real estate"?
    • ShoresGuy
      Here in Germany, BTS equipment is normally on the roof, next to the building or even in the basement itself.
    • Andy
      Lol, yes, the roof. I remember seeing some funny pictures ofBTS shelters/housings on rooftops.
