TowerXchange’s guide to the telecom tower market of Thailand
An overview of a promising yet challenging new market for APAC’s towercos
For those looking in from the outside, the Thai telecoms industry is crying out for infrastructure sharing. Alongside Vietnam, Thailand remains the only large ASEAN market to have yet been penetrated by the towerco model, which for a nation of over 70 million people and 129.6 million sim registrations represents a missed opportunity for Asia’s towercos.
With rumours swirling of a significant 20,000 tower infrastructure sale on the horizon, there is optimism that this is about to change. But how likely is it that an independent towerco would be able to survive, let alone thrive in the complicated Thai market? TowerXchange presents our guide to the telecom tower market of Thailand to help illuminate some of the opportunities and pitfalls that infrastructure providers should be aware of.
