AMN helping operators connect 108m new subscribers in rural Africa
Pioneering access service commissions the first of 200 sites in Benin
Africa Mobile Networks (AMN) has an interesting business model. They target similar opportunities to conventional independent towercos, only with the key parameters reversed! Where towercos provide passive infrastructure only to tier one MNO anchor clients needing extra capacity in high value, dense urban areas of established countries, AMN targets either tier one or tier two anchor tenants with a proposition that combines active and passive infrastructure and which focuses on rural areas of countries with less mature coverage.
TowerXchange: Where does AMN fit in the tower industry ecosystem?
Michael Darcy, CEO, AMN:
AMN is a towerco with a difference!
AMN is essentially a tower company but managing the active as well as passive components on a turnkey basis and taking a share of the risk on the revenue side.
