Best of both worlds?
How Vodafone Ghana secured investment in their legacy infrastructure, reduced opex AND kept their towers through an operational lease deal
TowerXchange had an opportunity to interview Tony Dolton, CTO of Vodafone Egypt, who was CTO of Vodafone Ghana from Vodafone’s acquisition of the Ghana Telecom in 2008 through July 2011. Vodafone Ghana’s operational lease deal with Eaton Towers was Tony’s brainchild.
TowerXchange: Thanks for taking the time to speak to us Tony. First of all, please could you tell us a little about your background and the how your experiences at Vodafone Ghana motivated you to agree this landmark tower sharing deal?
Tony Dolton, Vodafone:
I’ve been involved in tower sharing on both the buy-side and sell-side for many years.
