It’s no longer about just adding value to your commercial or hospitality property; now it’s about competitive survival.
We’ve all been there. Pick almost any multitenant building, hotel, or office tower and try to get a strong cell signal while inside it. People usually end up going to a window, where they pick up whatever remnants of their carrier’s signal make it through the glass. And good luck if the windows have been treated with low-E film since that stuff turns buildings into virtual Faraday cages. That used to be just an inconvenience. But today practically everyone not only has a smartphone but everyone relies on it for the majority of their voice communications. And those cell-hungry business mobile applications that used to be just nice-to-haves are turning into critically important, frontline business apps. That means getting solid cell reception when tenants are inside is something landlords and real estate developers are being forced to take seriously.
