Towercos should consider a contribution instead of a pricey plaque

In Daily News Briefs by Wireless Estimator

Unlike phony ego-boosting vanity award scams and paid articles, Wireless Estimator’s Top 100 Tower Companies in the U.S. is the real deal.

It’s a list of the industry’s top tower companies who have successfully built or acquired 10 or more macro towers. Their achievements are well known and applauded in a challenging environment.

However, a Connecticut wall plaque company is targeting those companies and offering them a laminated wall plate for slightly under $200 for making the list. For half the price, they can get an uninspiring graphic.

Although the company can solicit listees without permission from Wireless Estimator, we can also ask that those towercos ignore the vanity plaque plea and instead contribute to the Tower Family Foundation or any other charitable organization.

An office brag wall has never stepped up to assist individuals in their time of need.
