A broad-band internet company has a landman working our area looking to lease tower sites. Not really wanting to pay much rental. Proposing a barter for free broadband service, etc. For those of us stuck with satellite internet and monthly data limits that bend us over about two weeks into the month, most anything is an improvement BUT a long term contract with internet distribution technology advancing almost at the speed of light? Not too long ago, I lugged a Motorola bag phone around. Served its purpose. I could talk from the pasture to the office. I'm not smart enough to predict where technology will take us in the next 10-15 years but I am smart enough to realize the pitfall of hanging my star on the technology-of-the-day.

Any similar activity in your area? Some of you guys have leases in pretty remote areas. What say?

I couldn't get internet on my place South of Bowie. I don't live there. Then my Wife got me an IPAD. Dang near the same thing. Yeah, there are data limits but it works for me. Signs are going up around the area about getting internet anywhere. No longer need it.

I tried to get them to put in a tower on my place for the free internet deal. They ended up going somewhere else.

I have no idea about internet towers but the cell towers around here are paying around 10K a year plus more if more antennas are added.

I am assuming weíre talking about the same thing here.

Internet towers and not cell towers...

My sister has a friend who has an internet tower on him and she was telling me this but a few months ago.

If I remember right he gets free internet and maybe a couple hundred bucks a month for it.

Had a company we had service with , if you could call it that, a small family owned company, want to put a tower on the west side of my small 100 acre ranchito over in Fayette County years ago before I sold the place. Life time internet they said. We had so much hell with them with our internet up and down, on and off, with there shoddy equipment, told Guy no way. They would see tower on our land, think I had something to do with it, and go to the next pasture and shoot my windows out of the ranch house. .

I live north of Brownwood I use a local company that has really been pretty good until here recently. There are several wireless companies operating in this area now and the service seems to only get worse. Next link is moving into my area. I hope it will be an improvement over what I have now. I spoke to them about being a tower host but I never heard back from them.

Free internet would be nice.
