Over the past decade, there has been a transformation in the ownership of passive wireless infrastructure (towers) for mobile telecoms.
In some parts of the world, towers have been owned and managed by independent tower companies (TowerCos) for many years. TowerCos specialise in operating towers and are not vertically integrated with a mobile network operator (MNO) providing retail services.

This new Cullen International Global Trends report presents key statistics on the status and ownership of tower infrastructure worldwide. The report also discusses why TowerCos have emerged, and whether they are subject to regulation.
