Odd Tower Placement in Lincoln, Nebraska

So I was driving home from work the other day, and drove by this newly constructed tower, at the intersection of Adams St. and some unmarked road, but leads to the Windmill St. roundabout.

 

Is there a way to look up who operates on this tower?

This tower I know is managed by Crown Castle, per the signage outside. I thought it was strange though because there's a very VERY large tower (one of the largest I've ever seen) just down the street that serves the area with Verizon 1X, 3G, and LTE, Sprint's 3G, and AT&T's 3G that would more than be enough for this area.

My Transform Ultra (Boost Mobile/Sprint) shows five bars when I'm by both towers (not sure on db readings). The Cricket phone (which seems to have very similar coverage to the Sprint tower...) shows three bars, Verizon shows three bars, and AT&T shows no bars thanks to their complete neglect for Nebraska.

 

 

Also, I know of a tower that needs some serious attention. This tower is quite unique in the way it's been implemented, but has some horrible 3G speeds. The max I've ever gotten on this tower according to the Speedtest.Net app on Android is 0.10 down, 0.03 up. The oddly placed tower above in the first paragraph always gives me 2.53 down, 0.89 up, same with big red up there.

 

 

This site is unique because on the property, are four towers. Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and Cricket, all within one area, independent from each other.
