Apples iOS 6/FaceTime Chat Capabilities Affect Cell Tower Property Owners

  (June 14, 2012)

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) June 14, 2012

The recent introduction of FaceTime chat capabilities via cellular data, as opposed to only using this feature via Wi-Fi, can positively affect cell tower land owners pocketbooks. The announcement of this upgraded feature was made by Apple CEO Tim Cook on June 11, 2012, and accompanied news of a Fall launch for Apples latest software, the iOS 6 which will be available to consumers using the iPhone 4s and the iPad 3. These two devices alone comprise a large portion of iPhone and iPad users in the United States. According to Consumer Intelligence Research Partners CIRP, an astounding 89% of all iPhone sales since October of 2011 are the 4s generation while recent research conducted by Localytics indicates that the iPad 3 accounts for 20% of all iPads in the United States.

The iOS 6 software for the iPhone and iPad will bring upgrades to functionalities within these devices and new features, in particular, the usage of cellular data to conduct a FaceTime phone call. According to Todd Day, Senior Industry Analyst in the mobile and wireless division at Frost and Sullivan, FaceTime chat can use nearly 3 mb of data per minute. FaceTime chat via cellular data, among other iOS 6 features utilizing additional wireless data, will continue to pose strains on wireless carriers due to the upcoming hike in data usage. Currently, ten wireless carriers in the United States provide iPhone and iPad devices, including the top three carriers: Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.

With the constant rise of telecommunication technologies and data intensive software, there must be an adequate amount of cell phone towers to provide enough signal strength, bandwidth and frequency capacity to support these technologies and software.

Supply and demand is exemplified in this case, with cellular phone towers and their capacity, value, and negotiations related to the placement of new cell phone towers and the existing leases of current ones. Many property owners leasing their land for the placement of cell towers do not realize how valuable their land is to the telecom industry especially in this era of extreme technological advances.

With strains being imposed on current wireless networks, one would think high demand for capacity would equate to increases in cell tower rent revenues, benefiting the property owners who allow cell phone towers on their private land. Though the value of a property owners land increases due to this demand, the majority of land owners never realize it, therefore are never paid their fair value for the lease of their land. This disparity of information is what the telecoms and tower developers rely on. Until now, there has not been an advocate fighting for these property owners rights to fair value for their cell tower leases.
