Scalable, replicable, successful: how the Cellnex model is rolling out across Europe
TowerXchange spoke to Cellnex Telecom CEO, Tobias Martinez, about Cellnex’s success and plans for the future
When Cellnex began operating in telecoms towers, their aim was to emulate a more ‘US-style’ towerco model in Europe. It wasn’t an easy task - not only did they need to acquire the towers and find the tenants, but the whole market had to be created from a continent of disparate and unwilling stakeholders. Five years later, Cellnex has deployed (at time of writing) around €1.5bn across five countries and is in a strong position to continue their rapid growth. TowerXchange had the opportunity to ask Tobias Martinez a few questions, and we found out more about Cellnex’s business model, partnerships and plans for the future.
