Staying competitive in Africa’s busiest tower market
Gareth Townley, MD of Eaton Towers Ghana shares his thoughts on the advantages of a busy Ghanaian tower market and shares how they’re working to overcome some significant challenges
As Ghana’s three towercos stop to draw breath and consolidate their assets, we checked in with Gareth Townley, Managing Director of Eaton Towers Ghana, to find out how the market has developed since he last spoke to us two years ago, to find out how currency and power crises are hitting the market and to look towards the future of the country’s passive infrastructure.
TowerXchange: Given the fact Eaton Towers Ghana is well established in Ghana, where is the company’s focus in terms of capex and management time? Will this be significantly affected by the new acquisitions in the country?
Gareth Townley, Managing Director, Eaton Towers Ghana:
The acquisition is a key step for us as it gives us scale which means that we can offer a lot more to our customers and blend networks into one portfolio to create synergies.
