By offering the lowest cost solutions and a new business model to MNOs AMN is aiming to transform rural coverage

Africa Mobile Networks (AMN) will have 2,000 sites live by the middle of 2020, most in rural areas that nobody else was willing or able to serve. By vertically integrating passive and active telecoms infrastructure, AMN are able to drive down costs to a remarkable degree. Innovative revenue share models have enabled them to scale to several hundred sites over the last four years, and a move to add opex-only models will enable them to scale further. TowerXchange sat down with CEO Mike Darcy to discuss the details of the model and AMN’s ambitions to reach 20,000 sites next decade, and to transform rural coverage.
