Asia: 2018 New Markets, Consolidation Plans and Innovation Beyond Towers


New entrants are reshaping the markets in the Philippines, Myanmar and Bangladesh while leading players such as Protelindo, Viettel and edotco keep expanding their footprint, innovating and breaking ground in new countries. Meanwhile, the integration of fiber, the need for power innovations and the adoption of new technologies are changing the traditional towerco business model in Asia.

TowerXchange has travelled to some of the most dynamic markets in the region as well as interviewed key industry leaders to explore the most relevant developments and gain exclusive insights on top news such as the entrance of Mytel in Myanmar, the new towerco regime in Bangladesh as well as the imminent irruption of a new operator in the Philippines.

This knowledge and these insights will be brought together under one roof in Singapore, at the 5th annual TowerXchange Meetup Asia (Singapore, December 4-5), where 250+ leaders from the regional telecom infrastructure industry will come together to network and discuss market trends, deals and latest developments. 

You should get ready for the countless hours of discussions, networking and knowledge sharing by downloading the latest edition of the TowerXchange Asia Dossier and make sure you register for the TowerXchange Meetup Asia before it sells out! (…and don’t forget to book your seat for the networking dinner taking place on the evening of Tuesday, December 4). For more information about the meetup please click here.

Request your very own copy the TowerXchange Asia Dossier and find out insights leading tower experts shared with TowerXchange:

  • Viettel and SoEs continue to define tower market structure in Vietnam – TowerXchange travelled to Hanoi last September and took a closer look at the evolving Vietnamese telecom and tower industries. This report analyses the role of Viettel and its contestants while examining how this mature telecom market could still provide business opportunities for infrastructure and solution providers.
  • Fiber: an indispensable asset for tomorrow’s Asian networks – Access the very first guide to towerco-led fiber projects across Asia and analyze why fiber has become a necessity for modern telecom networks (and why towercos should get involved in the game).
  • An update on the Philippines: the next towerco frontier – The country is about to welcome a new operator and the government has proposed a common tower policy, so big Asian operators and infrastructure developers are looking closely at the Philippines, which can quickly become the new tower market in Asia.
  • How Irrawaddy Green Towers will remain the largest towerco in Myanmar – During TowerXchange’s trip to Yangon, they met David Venn who just took on the role of CEO of IGT, to find out more about his background, expectations and considerations on Myanmar and IGT’S future plans.
