I can not speak about the Rogers old towers in Manitoba since I do not know the history over there about their towers etc. but I do know Ontario pretty good and I was following very closely the Fido to Rogers Network Integration years ago. My friend had a Fido tower like 3 houses away from his house, but when the networks merged, Fido decommissioned the tower, and his phone connected with the Rogers tower which was much further away, so his signal bars were a bit lower. but we would often go for walks in the area and wonder what the heck would they do with the old abandoned tower. Surely someone was paying the monthly lease and utilities for this tower which was on Crown lands (Hydro One right of way) it was actually abandoned for I would say almost 2 years before we saw some new antenna going up. We later determined that the old abandoned tower was purchased by Wind Mobile's parent company Global Live back then, which is now Freedom Mobile, a division of Shaw Communications. So there is definitely a market for old unused towers.
