Insights from leading experts on stage at the TowerXchange Meetup Asia 2018
At the 2018 edition of the TowerXchange Meetup Asia, experts from Protelindo, Aird Towers, American Tower, Ascend Telecom Infrastructure, Bharti Infratel and Pakistan Telecommunication Company Limited took centre stage to discuss the dynamics of their respective markets – representing a pool of very diverse realities in terms of towerco penetration, telecom landscape and overall industry development. Here is a report of key findings from the session.
Asia is a very diverse tower ecosystem, home to several towerco business models depending on the circumstances that originally prompted the emergence of towercos.
Towercos in India and China for example have been created as the infrastructure arms of local MNOs, and as a mean to reallocate risks and rewards to – at least initially – favour the operators.
