Telecom infrastructure company Helios Towers plans to acquire additional mobile-phone tower sites in South Africa from Eagle Towers, Bloomberg reported. The company first entered South Africa in 2019 through a partnership with Vulatel that brought the group 500 sites. It will add another 65 with this deal, which it expects to be concluded by the second half of the year, CEO Kash Pandya said.
Helios also received an order from the country’s largest mobile operator Vodacom to build towers over the next fifteen months. Vodacom recently announced that it would start rolling out 5G services in South Africa’s three largest cities.
