This might appear to be fuzzy math. The article says that there are approximately 25 thousand projects all carriers need done in 2014. If an average crew is 3-4 members and a job takes one week the carriers alone would need: 1 crew = 50 jobs Total of all 25,000 jobs / 50 = 500 crews So if AT&T has 8,000 AT&T jobs they would need 160 crews. Bluestream, Mastec and Ericsson have approximately 375 crews dedicated to AT&T. Then you have Westower, Velocitel and MUTI and turfers like Goodman, Bechtel and their crews which could add another dedicated 125 crews or more to ATT. So we now have 500 dedicated crews or more doing AT&T work. Granted some of the work is tiger teams and ongoing maintenance but 500 At&T crews could do 25,000 AT&T jobs. Where am I wrong?
