TowerXchange’s updated Pakistan tower market study 2018
How the cancellation of edotco’s acquisition of 13,000 towers from Jazz will affect the market, and what might happen next
Following the recent announcement of the cancellation of edotco’s acquisition of Jazz’s 13,000 towers in Pakistan, TowerXchange has updated our Pakistan tower market study to include a deep dive into what this means for Pakistan’s fast-growing mobile market and what opportunities may come to the fore next.
While towercos have been licensed in Pakistan since 2006, towers were initially seen as a source of competitive advantage by fiercely competitive MNOs. Attitudes toward infrastructure sharing have thawed since 2011, with over 10,000 co-locations now on Pakistan’s towers. That culture of infrastructure sharing has now crystalised with the rise of edotco, who remain committed to the Pakistani market despite their latest setback.
