Service-Telecom: A towering ambition
Founded only two years ago, Service-Telecom has major plans to shake up the Russian tower industry
Russia has huge untapped potential for tower infrastructure – it has millions of mobile subscribers that are consuming data on platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook and Skype at an increasingly rapid pace. Nikolay Berdin, CEO of independent telecom tower infrastructure company Service-Telecom, explains why the company is seeking to expand its operations from Moscow into the whole of Russia. He also outlines the reasons why MNOs are partnering with towercos and transferring ownership of their assets to third parties, and talks about how the Russian government is supporting the development of the towerco industry.
