> why sell (or lease) your towers to a third party?

1. Because they don't want to deal with maintaining the physical tower.

2. Because the company buying the towers can rent space on them to additional carriers, and is willing to give a large chunk of money for that ability.

> Doesn't that make it harder to repair them when they go down

I have no idea why you think that. I rent my home. I don't have to deal with local property taxes or maintenance of the building, and yet none of those benefits interfere with me repairing my computer when it breaks.
