A report by Deloitte points out how the spread of 5G networks could affect the market. "The rise of 5G networks promises to spark an enormous wave of change starting in 2017. While the technology has not yet been fully defined, carriers are proceeding with lab and field trials for at least the basic connectivity elements in their race to stay competitive. The promise of 5G-more speed, greater efficiency, and less latency-will be essential to supporting connected things in the future. There could well be a push to launch 5G to consumers in trial markets by the end of 2017. We expect there will be full, mass market 5G coverage by approximately 2020," Deloitte reports.

Tower One Wireless Corp (OTCQB: TOWTF) also listed on the Canadian Stock Exchange under the Ticker 'TO'. Just earlier today the company announced breaking news that it has signed a letter of intent (the "LOI") to acquire a Mexican-based private tower company with a view to negotiating the terms of a definitive agreement in order to complete the acquisition of this Mexican-based tower company (the "Acquisition")

The Mexican-based tower company, which owns, builds and leases cellular towers to the telecom industry in Mexico, includes a Master Lease Agreement ("MLA") with AT&T permitting it to be granted direct Build-To-Suit ("BTS") opportunities for AT&T.

Alex Ochoa, CEO, stated "This acquisition will be a great addition to Tower One's strategy of entering into multiple jurisdictions that offer consistent annual infrastructure growth. We will now have the opportunity to work with one of the global leaders AT&T which is expanding its worldwide business. Since going public in Q1 2017, we have initiated our expansion program into three countries."

AT&T entered Mexico in 2015 by purchasing wireless operator Iusacell and the wireless assets of Nextel Mexico for a total of about $4.4 billion. Additionally, AT&T plans to invest as much as $3 billion to upgrade its network, improving LTE coverage to reach about 100 million users by 2018, up from around 51 million users currently. Further details regarding the proposed Acquisition will be provided in a news release, if and when the parties enter into a definitive agreement."

The company plans to invest $3 billion dollars from 2015 to 2018 to deploy a high-speed mobile network, in addition to the $4.4 billion dollars AT&T already invested to acquire Iusacell and Nextel Mexico. By the end of 2015, AT&T made its 4G LTE network available to 44 million Mexicans, out of a population of 120 million. AT&T expects its 4G LTE mobile network will be available to 100 million people by the end of 2018.
