As the industry continues to optimise the financial efficiency of its network assets, we assist our clients in understanding the value of towers and other passive infrastructure, as well as the pros and cons of monetising towers or sharing passive and active components within shared networks.
We provide support on both the buy and sell side of tower divestments, as well as advising operators on the benefits of passive and active network sharing. For tower transactions, we provide business cases together with commercial and technical due diligence. For network sharing, operators often jointly appoint us as a ‘clean team’ to build a business case without sharing data.
We also consider the policy issues raised by infrastructure sharing, applying our understanding of the pros and cons of TowerCo models and inter-operator network sharing from the perspectives of competition, consumer benefits and environmental benefits.
