Phoenix Tower International: from towerco to infraco
The leading firm launches fibre activities in Mexico following a strategic acquisition
With operations across fifteen countries, Phoenix Tower International (PTI) is one of the fastest growing towercos in the western hemisphere and has proven to be very entrepreneurial in its geographical expansion. In Q3 2018, PTI acquired 974km (or 17 rings) from a carrier in Mexico and in this exclusive interview, Don van Splunteren, responsible for the company’s global commercial activities, shares with TowerXchange insights into its fibre projects and why this “new” segment makes perfect sense for towercos to complement the traditional tower business model.
