Growth, competition and co-operation: the tower market in Mozambique
As three operators fight for this rapidly expanding market, the question being asked is whether shared towers can be leveraged to support growth?
Now Vietnam’s largest mobile network operator, Viettel’s rapid and aggressive entry into the Mozambican Telecommunications industry has shaken up what had become a rather predictable and steady market.
This coupled with the excitement regarding renewed economic development in the country driven by untapped gas resources and increasing market penetration, has shown that there is undoubtedly opportunity for strong growth in the market.
Gary Staunton, CEO of Likusasa Group, talks to TowerXchange about these developments, how the market has changed and the effect it has had on the operators’ appetite for tower sharing.
