Cellnex Telecom CEO shares his views on the future of European towers
As the proposed 2020 5G rollout date draws closer, tower companies must balance capex deployment between organic growth, new acquisitions and investing in infrastructure for a future which may look very different to the architecture of today.
In this interview, Tobias Martinez, CEO of Europe’s biggest towerco Cellnex Telecom and a keynote speaker at Meetup Europe 2018, shares his ambitions for Cellnex in terms of both organic and inorganic growth, and explains how the towerco is preparing for a shift away from macro infrastructure.
