IHS Kuwait WLL went operational in February 2020 after IHS Holding completed the sale and lease back of approximately 1,620 telecommunication towers in Kuwait from Mobile Telecommunications Company K.S.C.P (Zain), Kuwait’s leading mobile telecommunications operator.
The transaction, which creates the first independent tower operator of scale in the GCC region, also represents the first sale and leaseback of telecom towers in the Middle East by a licensed mobile operator.
Zain has more than 1,620 mobile telecommunication towers located in prime and strategic locations across Kuwait and this transaction will enable Zain to focus on its core business and customers while accelerating Zain’s investments in cutting edge telecom technologies to help meet growing mobile data demand.
