Options to Connect

New Tower or Not: During our evaluation process, we identify whether we need to build our own tower, or if there is an existing structure we can use. To deliver the best signal to customers, it’s best to place our equipment on a structure that’s around 160-180 feet tall. This could be something like a grain elevator or a water tower if we are working with a municipality.

Tower Options: If we build a tower, we have four different options. One option only needs about 4 square feet of land, so we really can cater to the space available.

Surveying: In the process of selecting the right equipment for the area, we make a number of visits to survey the land and complete all the necessary regulatory and environmental checks.

Ongoing Maintenance: Once equipment is installed, there is very little maintenance needed. Even though we place electrical equipment nearly 200 feet in the air, it can withstand a lot. Apart from any issues, we typically return on an annual or bi-annual basis to check on it – making it as convenient as possible for our landowner partners.

When you partner with Midco, you are helping bring a vital service to your community and to your neighbors. With Midco equipment on your property, you will have access to our fast and reliable internet. Plus, Midco will pay you for the use of your land or property.

This detailed process requires environmental and regulatory permission to proceed, which can take between nine months and a year depending on the project.

However, landowners can help in this process by responding quickly to our Vertical Asset team with an answer. Even if the answer is no, it helps us move on to other areas.

Actual tower installation typically only takes a week. Installing equipment on an existing structure is even faster.

The landowner has no responsibility for the care of Midco equipment or the tower – which is spelled out in leases.

 

On the Midco side, there is very little maintenance required. Unless there are issues (which are rare), our team only needs to return to the site once a year – or sometimes less – to check on things.
