We redefine your reality through connectivity

Since 2011, we have built, owned and managed wireless infrastructure across the Americas and created a dominant platform for communications infrastructure development. Our assets redefine what is possible by enabling new technologies, fostering stable business growth, and generating high user satisfaction with connectivity.

A true ecosystem to catalyze transformative ideas.

With over 2,500 network assets installed and under development in the United States, Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, and Peru, QMC offers complete solutions for coverage and capacity across the wireless landscape. We own and operate more than 70 million square feet of indoor Distributed Antenna System (DAS) coverage. In addition to DAS, we develop, own, operate, and lease towers, rooftops, and small cells for mobile network operations.

QMC TELECOM uses connectivity as a tool for transformation

We believe in connections.
We believe in connecting people.

We believe in being connected anywhere, anytime. We believe in overcoming the barriers of physical distance, that you can live in one place, and work in another, keep in touch with family and friends who live in other countries, pay a visit to Everest on your computer, learn Spanish from your couch. The sky is the limit when we are connected.

We believe that our future offers connections with endless possibilities

5G brings unprecedented high speeds for data transfer, low latency for real-time responses, and scalability. We will have the opportunity to explore and discover new applications for existing technologies, as well as create an environment to discover other technologies not yet seen before.

 

CEREBROWe want to create, transform and connect ideas

To do that, we have dedicated ourselves to making connectivity a common utility, such as electricity and running water, for as many people as possible.

 

 

And we believe that to make all of this happen, we will need a lot of #orangeblood and #rock&roll.
