A roundup of tower news across SSA and MENA

Bahrain: Regulator issues RFP to examine the rationalisation of the Kingdom’s towers

The Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Bahrain has issued an RFP to find a partner to organise the Kingdom’s telecom sites. The country, with 3.1mn mobile connections (GSMA Intelligence) has 1500 towers, in a market which estimates suggest requires just 400. Similar to other Middle Eastern markets, a high degree of parallel infrastructure exists with MNOs (in this case Batelco, Zain and Saudi Telecom Company owned Viva) having historically been reluctant to share infrastructure.
