Brazilian site acquirer-turned towerco targets 2,000 BTS sites in five years

Founded in November 2010, Skysites started out as an aggregator, accumulating a portfolio of 27,000 prospective cell sites by securing exclusive agreements with large property owners including retail chains, churches, hotels, universities and sports arenas. As Brazilian carriers moved from building their own towers to outsourcing to towercos, Skysites has moved into the build to suit business, as well as exploring small cells and Wi-Fi.
