Our history

Founded in 2001, IHS Towers is one of the largest independent owners, operators and developers of shared telecommunications infrastructure in the world. We are the largest independent tower operator in six of the nine markets in which we operate, and the only independent tower operator in five of these markets, with over 30,500 towers in our portfolio.

We provide mission-critical telecommunications infrastructure to our customers, most of who are leading MNOs, who in turn provide wireless voice and data services to their end users. In doing so, we help facilitate mobile communications coverage for approximately 600 million people (according to World Bank data) across our footprint, supporting economies to implement nationwide digital agendas.
