Property Evaluation Guidelines

Sprint is actively seeking suitable properties on which our macro cell site or small cell equipment can be located.  Typically, our macro cell sites require ground space on which we would construct a tower, or rooftop space for installation of our equipment.  Our small cells generally require space on the exterior or rooftop of buildings or other structures.  If you have property that you would like us to consider, please review the following "Design Criteria" and click Continue at the bottom of this page to continue with our Cell Site Sign-up form.  Otherwise, just close this window.

Design Criteria

Sprint is currently building in and around major metropolitan areas in the United States, including the major corridors (freeways and highways) connecting these metropolitan areas.  If your property is more than 20 miles outside one of these metropolitan areas or more that 10 miles away from the freeway or highway entering these metropolitan areas, it is unlikely that we would be able to use your property.  Typically, we prefer the following:

Land for Tower sites:

•  Should provide a leased area approximately 50' x 50'
•  Should be no more than 300 to 500 feet (about the length of a football field) from a major paved public street
•  Should be in a community which allows telecommunication towers
•  Must provide 24 hour access, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to all portions of the facility

Building or Rooftop Macro Cell sites:

•   Should be a minimum of 3 to 4 stories tall
•   Should be a flat roof (hot roof, gravel roof)
•   Must provide at least a 10' x 20' area for equipment on the roof, in the building, or on the ground immediately next to the building
•   Must provide 24 hour access, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to all portions of the facility

Small Cell sites:

•   Should be a minimum of 3 to 4 stories tall
•   Must provide at least a 5’ x 5’ area for small cell equipment on the rooftop or attached to the building or other structures.
•   Must provide 24 hour access, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to all portions of the facility

When completing the Cell Site Sign-up form and giving us the location of your property, please provide directions and distances from major intersections within the Details of Property area.  This will assist us in cross-referencing your location.

Following these guidelines and instructions will greatly improve our ability to locate and evaluate your property.   You will only be contacted if Sprint decides to pursue your location as a candidate for a site.  Thank you for your interest.
