18 Sep 2023

T-Mobile US is in discussions with a unit of Tillman Global Holdings with a view to collaborating on the deployment of a fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) network, Bloomberg reports, citing people familiar with the situation. As per the article, the proposed deal would make T-Mobile an anchor tenant on the newly formed fibre-optic joint venture between Tillman FiberCo and private equity firm Northleaf Capital Partners.

Under the agreement, Tillman, financed by Northleaf, would build out network infrastructure to various neighbourhoods and business districts and fill orders to connect homes and companies with fibre. T-Mobile will market the service under its own brand and fulfil customer support and billing duties. Tillman FiberCo CEO Ken Dixon has previously indicated that the company’s fibre rollout will initially target parts of Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Texas and Florida.
