We work closely with our tower sharing clients and aim to build long-term, mutually beneficial relationships. Many of our clients view us as their trusted partner to help them carry out their own strategic initiatives throughout Africa.
We look to help all our clients make the most of the many benefits of tower sharing – from reducing costs to improving customer service, from greener solutions to faster, more efficient and effective expansion of coverage. As part of this commitment, we provide three flexible options for our clients to benefit from tower sharing: Build-to-Suit (BTS), Buy-Lease-Back (BLB), and Manage with License to Lease (MLL). The emphasis is on allowing operators to capitalize on tower sharing in the most advantageous way possible.
