Our strategy

Since IHS’ inception in 2001, we have established a reputation as a leader in the high growth, emerging market telecommunications infrastructure sector, servicing MNOs and ultimately the growing end-consumer market through critical infrastructure, which also benefits our markets' broader communities by accelerating access to mobile communications. 

Through the growth of 2G, 3G, 4G and now 5G, we have helped MNOs in our markets provide services to their customers by owning, operating, sharing and constructing telecommunications infrastructure. The strategic objectives which guide our business strategy are as follows:

  • Drive organic growth in our network infrastructure by maximizing Colocation, Lease Amendments and New Sites roll-out;
  • Continue focusing on operational excellence, service delivery for our customers and adopting an innovative approach to new technology;
  • Continue growing our business through disciplined organic and inorganic investment into telecommunications infrastructure opportunities;
  • Continue improving our impact on our communities and the environment.
