Senegal: A new growth market for towercos?
With a tower deal in the pipeline and the potential for more, TowerXchange investigates the Senegalese market
Senegal is a stable democracy targeting strong growth over the next few years. The country’s three operators all offer 3G services but 4G licensing controversy means there’s still significant growth to be found should independent towercos enter the market. As Orange’s Sonatel looks for partners to manage and build their tower portfolio in the country, TowerXchange explores the potential for growth and asks which towercos might be interested in this West African market.
Senegal: relatively low country risk, solid growth prospects
As one of the most stable countries in Africa, Senegal has operated a democratic process since 2000, with former prime minister Macky Sall’s Alliance for the Republic party winning over 65% of the vote in the most recent 2012 elections.
