Congo B overview
Leading independent towerco
With around 70% of the land covered by rainforest, Congo Brazzaville is one of the most urbanised countries in Africa, with nearly 70% of Congolese living in urban areas. As a member of OPEC and with a vast oil reserve, it is one of Africa’s largest oil producers and oil contributes to half the country’s GDP.
We entered this market in 2016, following the purchase of Airtel Africa’s tower assets and have since supported the mobile operators’ expansion plans across the county.
While relatively small in terms of population compared to neighbouring DRC, there continues to be growth in mobile, reflecting low mobile penetration today and continued population growth.
