HOI targets 5G and Egypt’s US$45bn new capital city
HOI sets it sights on growth through new build and is ready to play a key role in developing Egypt’s telecoms infrastructure
Egypt’s only active towerco HOI still owns just 38 sites, but as a managed service provider and manufacturing partner has now completed 2,350 sites alongside the region’s MNOs. It has recently rebranded itself as HOI, and is moving from being a static asset manufacturer to turnkey infrastructure service provider. HOI has increased its geographical footprint and now serves Saudi Arabia, UAE, Sudan and Morocco. Their unique camouflaged multi-tenant towers have enabled them to become key partners of Egypt’s mobile network operators. HOI’s COO Sherif Darwish talks to TowerXchange about his plans to build new sites to meet the demands of 5G rollout and the opportunities presented by Egypt’s new cities and infrastructure.
