Brazilian tower market emerging from a period of uncertainty and irrationality
Long term outlook remains positive for CALA’s largest tower market
Every year over a dozen of the leading stakeholders in the Brazilian tower market convene for their annual roundtable debate at the TowerXchange Meetup Americas. This year’s candid diagnosis acknowledged 2015-16 as slow years for growth, inhibited by uncertainty surrounding the bankruptcy of Oi and an irrational BTS market, while revealing continued optimism about the long term prospects of Brazil closing its growing infrastructure gap.
Moderated by Jose Varela, COO of Grupo TorreSur, the Brazil roundtable at the TowerXchange Meetup Americas 2017 facilitated an open discussion between senior representatives of the country’s leading towercos; American Tower, SBA Communications, Phoenix Tower do Brasil, Highline do Brasil and QMC Telecom.
