TowerCo Announces Mobile Version of New Tower Search Engine

Announcement Is Part of Effort Designed to Highlight the Company’s Commitment to Simplifying the Tower Colocation Process


Nashville, TN (September 22, 2009) — TowerCo announced at the PCIA show today a mobile version of a new Web-based search engine designed to make tower searches much simpler for radio frequency (RF) engineers and site acquisition consultants operating in the field.

Industry professionals operating remotely or from the office depend on tower data when determining antenna colocation opportunities in new and existing wireless service areas.

The mobile version of the new “Tower Finder” search engine offers a “Find Nearby Towers” function, allowing BlackBerry and iPhone users the ability to locate nearby towers. This GPS-based functionality will be extended to additional Smartphone devices as GPS support is added to those Web browsers.

Similar to the website version, registered users will be able to quickly locate tower properties based on geographic location, state, county, city, street address, site name, site identification number or antenna structure registration (ASR) number — all through a Smartphone device.

TowerCo CEO Richard Byrne said, “Customers all told us the same thing: ‘Give me what I want when and where I want it.’ That’s exactly what we are working toward.”

Earlier this summer, TowerCo unveiled a newly designed website,, and a new tagline: “Simplicity. Found.” The company is focused on finding ways to make doing business with TowerCo as simple as possible.
