Since our company was founded in 2014, Vertical Bridge has quickly become the largest private owner and manager of communication infrastructure in the U.S., dedicated to providing our customers with superior service in a dynamic market.

Vertical Bridge currently has more than 307,000 owned and managed sites nationwide, including wireless and broadcast towers, rooftops, land parcels, and billboards. These assets have been assembled through more than 250 acquisitions and 180 real estate transactions, and we continue to grow and enhance our infrastructure each year to meet the evolving needs of our customers.

Our Thinking

Vertical Bridge is driven by an entrepreneurial spirit and forward-thinking team. We understand that as technology changes, the way we approach it should too. Communications is evolving faster than ever before, and new technologies like 5G and ATSC 3.0 need new infrastructure solutions. This mindset has helped us grow exponentially since Vertical Bridge launched in 2014, and it continues to be one of the key contributors to our success.

It’s also why we’re proud to be part of a family of companies, brought together by Digital Colony, that creates new opportunities for our clients.

Together, we represent the converging path of the wireless network’s physical layer. Our companies − made up of towers, small cells/DAS, fiber and data center providers − work together, and complement each other, delivering the sites that ALL of our customers need. No more siloed solutions.
