TowerXchange market study: Structuring infrastructure sharing in Bangladesh

Amid a healthy culture of infrastructure sharing, will regulations be conducive to towerco investment?

Towercos stand poised to acquire half of Bangladesh’s 29,900 telecom towers within the next two years, creating operational and environmental efficiencies, reducing parallel infrastructure, and accelerating network extensions and QoS improvements. Market leader Grameenphone established their wholesale division and began leasing their towers in 2010, edotco entered in 2013 and now operates 8,200 towers for Robi, while Veon has carved out their towers with intent to monetise. However, the future structure of the tower market remains uncertain pending the establishment of a regulatory regime conducive to towerco investment.

Demographics

With a population of around 160mn packed into a land mass just under 150,000km² (smaller than Iowa!), Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries in the world.
