Introduction to the tower industry in Cameroon

IHS acquired or operates 90% of towers in Cameroon; Viettel launches 3G in September 2014

Two major shakeups have brought about a period of unprecedented change and opportunity in the hitherto under-developed Cameroon telecommunications market. The transfer of over 1,900 towers by both market leading MNOs, MTN and Orange, to IHS Africa has coincided with the licensing of new market entrant Viettel.

Viettel’s March 2014 launch was recently postponed to September, but the pressure of time to market and shrinking window of exclusivity in 3G, which runs through the end of 2014, may be eased by Viettel signing an agreement to co-locate on IHS towers.

While clear market leaders, MTN and Orange are not the sole players in Cameroon.
