In an interview with Bloomberg TV, Omar Jaffrey discussed the inevitable rise to data consumption in coming years by 10 times what it is now. There is a growing demand for data consumption, and organizations like Melody Investment Advisors are helping this demand by fostering partnerships between wireless carriers and investors. Additionally, with this growth, the US government will need to play a significant role to build infrastructure and decrease the red tape around infrastructure investments. Currently, about 150 million Americans have poor internet infrastructure, but there is plenty of room to improve this and a strong demand to do so. Other national wireless markets are ahead of the US in infrastructure and telecom investments, but the US is not far behind and it has the opportunity to capitalize on the industry’s growth. Accelerated growth in the US telecom investments will occur and the country will catch up to other wireless markets like China, Japan, and South Korea.

Recently, Melody Investment Advisors have purchased 1,150 cell towers from CTI Towers and another 500 towers from Uniti Tower to further their digital infrastructure plans and broaden telecommunications. In an interview with Light Reading, Omar Jaffrey discussed their current investment portfolio and how this could change as new opportunities arise. Omar Jaffrey, the co-founder and managing partner of Melody, is looking to expand digital infrastructure and telecom investments. He explained that it’s a unique time where digital infrastructure is thriving, while other industry infrastructure like travel and leisure are crumbling. Additionally, the digital infrastructure investment opportunities are wide open at the moment, with large areas for extreme growth like edge computing and 5G. In terms of their own investments, Melody Investment Advisors is focused on stable opportunities like towers, but they understand the growing opportunities in small cells and smaller scale deals.

Jaffrey went on to give details on two significant deals he made this year, partnering Melody Infrastructure with CTI Towers and Harmoni. Jaffrey concluded the interview by giving a vision of the future of wireless internet service provisions (WISPs), and for Melody Investment specifically, describing the changes that will occur as cable companies consolidate WISPs on regional platforms and what it would look like for tech companies like Google and Facebook to take on the challenge of creating a nationwide WISP platform.
