MNO competition, infrastructure quality and potential tower transactions in Mozambique
TowerXchange’s analysis of the tower market in Mozambique
In 2012, the entrance of a third MNO, Movitel, into Mozambique caused a radical shake up of the country’s telecoms sector. With a tower sale now underway by the state owned mCel and a bill mandating infrastructure sharing having been proposed in late 2015, things could be set to change again. We take a detailed look at the Mozambican telecoms sector and ask what might be on the horizon.
Mozambique has a population of 28.4mn, with 68% living in rural areas. The country has been marred by bouts of civil unrest in Northern and Central provinces with strong opposition to the current ruling party.
