Demand forecasts for telecom infrastructure equipment and services in Sub-Saharan Africa
Significant capex programmes were planned for many African countries during 2020 but were derailed by COVID-19 supply chain disruptions and local lockdowns. Now, with lockdowns eased and the resilience of the telecom supply chain proven, spending is coming back. TowerXchange is expecting a snap back of new tower build and investment in green tech to respond to increased demand for data across Africa. In the longer-term the situation has never been more uncertain, but in the here and now towercos and MNOs have to maintain network availability and boost capacity.
Ahead of the 8th Annual TowerXchange Meetup Africa Borderless coming up on 13-14 October 2020 online, TowerXchange take a deep dive into the sub- Saharan African region, exploring the appetite for passive infrastructure equipment and services in 24 countries.
