Working together to advocate the tower industry to governments and regulators
The CEO of the newly formed IDIA explains the regulatory conditions conducive to attracting towerco investment
The International Digital Infrastructure Alliance (IDIA) has been formed to fill a void in terms of independent, international advocacy of the tower industry, with a goal of educating regulatory, federal, regional and municipal government stakeholders about the socio-economic benefits of the towerco business model, and how the tower industry accelerate National Broadband initiatives and the emergence of Digital Economies. TowerXchange spoke to our old friend Chuck Green, recently appointed CEO of the IDIA, to understand the vision and goals of this important new initiative.
TowerXchange: Congratulations Chuck on the latest of the tower ventures you have founded or Co-founded, successfully monetising, after the Helios Towers IPO last month! Please tell us a bit about your history in the tower industry, and what has brought you to your new role as Chief Executive of the International Digital Infrastructure Alliance (IDIA).
