The team at Blue Sky Towers combine more than two decades of experience in South African telecoms, deep engineering experience, and a focus on managed build out and effective lease up of their towers. As they expand out of their native Western Cape, TowerXchange discusses the power situation in South Africa, the pipeline of build-to-suit and prospects for 5G in Africa’s most developed telecoms market.
