Wireless Concessions

The infrastructure needed to deliver 3G and 4G services may seem invisible, but this crucial national framework is discreetly placed in and around our surroundings. Signal-emitting masts are buried in the lampposts that light our streets, the CCTV fixtures that keep us safe, and among many other urban fixtures.

Maximise the value of your assets

Maximise the value of your assets

As our dependence on mobile technologies continues to grow, so too does the amount of equipment that needs hiding. This demand will only grow as we move towards 5G, too.

While this is a challenge for network operators, it presents fantastic opportunities for councils and other public asset owners. Opportunities we can facilitate through our Wireless Concessions service.

Monetise your assets

Assets such as lampposts, rooftops, CCTV fixtures, bins and even old telephone boxes are in demand from network operators. Increasingly, these companies are looking for everyday urban objects to house the equipment necessary to keep customers connected and satisfied – and they’re ready to pay.

Further demand from advertisers creates even more opportunities to increase the value of your assets. With the rise of location-based marketing, a growing number of companies are investing in Bluetooth and GPS technologies to reach their target audiences more effectively.

Boost economic development

The benefits extend beyond instant monetisation too, especially for councils.

Connectivity and digital telecommunications are essential to today’s consumers and organisations. Access is now expected, and availability can influence major decisions.

Granting access to your physical assets, therefore, can help your area’s long-term economic development. The technology present has the power to attract investment from businesses and bring in people, both permanently and temporarily.
