People covered by our towers

Our principal business is building, acquiring and operating telecommunications towers that can accommodate and power the needs of multiple tenants.These tenants are predominantly blue-chip mobile network operators and we offer them a comprehensive passive infrastructure solution that includes site selection and preparation, maintenance, security, power management, and hosting of active equipment such as antennae.

Our infrastructure-sharing model enables MNOs to roll out and densify mobile coverage more quickly, cost-effectively and with a lower environmental impact. In turn, this means that individuals and communities across our markets can experience the life-changing benefits of mobile connectivity more rapidly.

Our markets share similar characteristics: strong population growth, low mobile penetration, multiple MNOs, and a tower and power infrastructure gap. Combined, this presents a compelling structural growth opportunity for our business.

Our purpose is to drive the growth of mobile communications across Africa and the Middle East
