Inwit could become the largest independent towerco in Italy
But can the Italian company compete with Cellnex?
Mobile Network Operators realised early on that owning passive infrastructure didn’t secure any competitive advantage in Italy, especially since TIM - the mobile arm of Telecom Italia - already had a widespread portfolio of sites and started leasing to third parties back in 2004. As Inwit gears up to follow Cellnex into an IPO, the Italian tower market takes another giant leap toward a towerco-driven ecosystem. What do we know about Inwit and their portfolio of 11,519 towers?
Infrastrutture Wireless Italiane S.p.A., commonly known as Inwit, is the largest Italian towerco with a portfolio of 11,519 sites spread all over the national territory.
