Bangladesh: will towercos and MNOs finally start working together?
After two tough years, local players reflect on where the market is heading
During the latest edition of the TowerXchange Meetup Asia, players from the Bangladesh telecom sector took centre stage to discuss the state of the market following the entrance of towercos in 2018. The past couple of years haven’t been easy for MNOs and towercos active in the market, due to the time it has taken to agree the terms of the master service agreement to govern the entire industry. In this editorial, TowerXchange takes a look at what’s happened over the past few months and whether the future looks any brighter for the year to come.
While Bangladesh formally opened up to towercos in 2018, licensed entities and MNOs have faced some crucial challenges that prevented towercos from becoming fully operational.
