Featuring exclusive interviews with senior executives at Eaton Towers and Orange
TowerXchange: Congratulations on announcing Eaton Towers’ deal with Telkom Kenya / Orange today. We understand the deal includes is a 15 year tower management and lease including a little over 1,000 towers, with a build to suite programme, and Telkom Kenya retaining ownership of towers. Can you confirm whether the deal includes all of Telkom Kenya’s towers, or whether some have not been transferred, and can you confirm whether it’s purely a managed service deal or are Eaton Towers to sell co-locations at the sites?
Peter Reinartz, Managing Director, Eaton Towers Kenya:
I can confirm the deal includes close to 1,000 towers and that is all the towers owned by Telkom Kenya.
