Bharti Airtel to sell mobile towers in Tanzania, Malawi?

20 Nov 2014

The disposal of mobile phone towers in Africa by Indian telecoms group Bharti Airtel will include the sale of masts in Tanzania and Malawi, according to a report by Reuters, which cites a person with knowledge of the transaction. The Tanzanian deal will include the sale of around 1,000 masts to Helios Towers, the unnamed source said, while an unspecified number of Airtel Malawi units will go to Eaton Towers. Bharti had earlier said it would sell 3,500 towers across six African countries to Eaton, and 3,100 masts in four markets to Helios, but did not give details on the countries involved.
