A summary of findings from the past few months of research as developed by TowerXchange
2013 was an exciting year for the Latin American telecom tower industry, with 14,035 towers divested, more than double the previous year. With 12,369 towers sold in Brazil alone, the country placed itself at the very heart of the transformation of the tower industry, also thanks to the push provided by upcoming events such as the 2014 World Cup and 2015 Summer Olympics.
With 1,666 towers divested, Mexico experienced yet another interesting year in terms of transactions while international media continue to speculate about imminent changes to the national telecom regulatory framework.
