Quite a year, wasn’t it?
Our industry not only “rode the tiger” of the pandemic, post election stress and it’s unwanted cousin, political upheaval, but of a market roiling in opportunities both lost and found. Through the “sturm und drang” of it all, we’ve come out on the other side more COVID-savvy, certainly, but more resilient and, in my opinion, more generous and accepting of what we all have suffered through and survived collectively. Our market is the envy of so many others that had to make radical changes, deep cuts, and painful decisions affecting other lives. We all have friends and relatives in those fields, academics, restaurants, hospitality, healthcare who may not even be in them anymore. So while we shake our heads as we look back on this wild and wooly ride we’ve been given, we need to prepare ourselves for more turbulence ahead while anticipating the myriad opportunities the wireless infrastructure market will surely throw our way this year.
The editors of Inside Towers have put together some thoughts on what we just witnessed and what might be ahead. With Leslie, John and Sharpe, the best editorial talent in this space ever assembled (maybe I‘m a little prejudiced), we will do our best to keep you informed and aware of what is happening on a daily basis. That is our privilege and our honor, and one we take seriously. We rely on you, our readers, to help keep us informed, let us know what we missed, and give us the occasional tip on what might be ahead. We’ll jump down this rabbit hole together and see what the Mad Hatter called 2022 has in store.
