BOSTON (PRWEB) July 18, 2019
Q2 2019 was a quarter of heightened activity and excitement in the telecom tower sector. Cellnex announced several transformative transactions in Europe, American Tower announced the acquisition of $1.85Bn of tower assets from Eaton Towers in Africa, and Phoenix Tower continued their streak of acquisitions. We look forward to a tremendous amount of activity in the second half of the year, including the outcome of the T-Mobile and Sprint merger, the possible mega-merger between Axiata and Telenor, and the first wave of many sites rolling out in the Philippines. Read more in the Q2 2019 installment of our quarterly Global Tower Market Update.
While towers will continue to see a healthy dose of activity globally with build-to-suits, sale and lease-backs, and consolidation, the next wave of activity will be proximity to-the-X for latency and capacity. Quality of service has been declining with the increased data strain over mobile networks, and we expect that there will be healthy growth in towers and a surge in investments in fiber-based deployments. “We have seen significant interest in the proliferation of dense fiber-based converged network investments,” explains Ethan Wilcox, Managing Principal with High Street Global Advisors. “End-user, vertical specific solutions will drive innovative platforms in dense urban, urban and suburban use cases. Similar to multi-tenant tower solutions, when marrying the right commercial framework, services platform and attachment point utilization, yields can be robust and solve many critical pinch points.”
