From Fixed Wireless to towerco
WIRUlink provide high-speed Fixed Wireless connections in South Africa, but have 51 leasable towers and plan to expand their tower leasing business
From fixing laptops in a South African suburb, to a Fixed Wireless Operator, to a fledgling towerco, WIRUlink’s management have not been afraid to take the initiative. Offering Fixed Wireless through a combination of leased towers and their own sites led WIRUlink to consider the opportunities of becoming a towerco themselves. Now with 51 sites leaseable and hundreds more ready to build or ready for occupation, WIRUlink have a steady growth plan and prospective investor which will see them expand throughout the 2020s. TowerXchange sat down with CEO Jaco Maree, to discuss WIRUlink’s entry into the world of towercos.
