Capitel on fibre, 5G and the evolution of Asian towers
Why are towercos and MNOs increasingly focusing on fibre and where are they with 5G deployment?
To better understand the drivers behind fibreisation and where Asian telecom players are when it comes to 5G, TowerXchange recently talked with two experts from advisory firm Capitel Partners. In this interview, Puja Goyal and Atirek Gupta share their views on fibre and draw comparisons with the traditional towerco business model. While challenging and very different, one conclusion stands out, fibre is a necessity and those who engage with it will have an edge in Asian telecoms.
