Cote d'Ivoire Gets First Tower Company

Cote d'Ivoire's first independent tower company "SWAP Technologies and Telecomms Limited" (SWAP) has gone live with its first cell sites built for co-location. SWAP commenced telecoms services operations in Abidjan in 2009 with the objectives of providing infrastructure support services to the industry in Cote d'Ivoire by construction of BTS and managed services.

According to Dammy Olarinde, Country Director & Head International Operations of SWAP CI: "This is a very exciting time for the mobile industry in Cote d'Ivoire, which is set for rapid growth. We are open for business now and ready with our extensive expertise and local experience to partner further with mobile operators."
"We'll manage their towers and help them rapidly roll out new sites so that they can focus on their customers whilst reaping the compelling economic benefits of tower sharing without having to make any additional capital expenditure."

SWAP is an African-focused tower company that owns, builds, manages and maintains telecom towers for mobile operators.
