66. Oh, they're the latest incarnation of the billboard mob as well, I see...

(There are only so many prime sites to go round, limited supply and constant strong demand, you see, as a London-Irish friend once explained to me. Including during election times, I'd add).

Clear Channel Outdoor UK

Clear Channel Outdoor UK is the UK's leading outdoor advertising company, providing more than 70,000 advertising locations across its four main brands: Clear Channel Billboards, Clear Channel Adshel, Clear Channel Pinnacle and Taxi Media. Clear Channel Adshel is the UK’s leading supplier of 6-sheet advertisingwith 65% of the UK roadside 6-sheet market. Clear Channel Adshel offers advertising space at Sainsbury’s and Somerfield supermarkets and in over 80 UK shopping centres as well as advertising at music venues and universities. Clear Channel Billboards is the market leader in 96 sheet billboards and offers 48-sheet billboards across the United Kingdom and Ireland. Clear Channel Pinnacle offers higher-cost advertising on over 200 special high-profile sites such as London’s Cromwell Road and M4 Towers as well as banner advertising on sites including Fort Dunlop in Birmingham.

Clear Channel activities have often put it at odds with Local Authorities in the UK for erecting adverts without consent which is a criminal offence. The company has been convicted many times for such activities.

"Vertical" real-estate. And phones, internet via that real-estate... Hmm.

Clear Channel owns and operates approximately 1,500 broadcast transmission towers across the US. many of which are available for co-location by third parties such as cellular and PCS companies, wireless internet, fixed wireless, and other broadcasters.
