TowerXchange don’t want to critique a Myanmar tower rollout that is already transforming the lives of the citizens, but the reality is that operational challenges continue to delay “the last great greenfield telecoms rollout”. We should emphasise at the outset that subscribers are signing up in their millions, inflated tariffs have plummeted, and towers are being lit on a daily basis – commendable progress is being made. But significant challenges remain in importing equipment, permitting sites, licensing towercos and in the incompatibility of Telenor and Ooredoo’s approaches to cell site energy, which in the near-term is stifling tower sharing and slowing progress.
