Nigeria is the largest mobile communications market in Africa. IHS Towers began in Nigeria in 2001, and remains our largest market today. We are committed to developing our services in Nigeria and continue meeting the growing demand for mobile.

The company started as a provider of site build services for mobile network operators in Nigeria, but has gone on to develop deep expertise in all aspects of telecom towers. Today, IHS and its subsidiaries in Nigeria manage over 16,700 sites. We operate from our head office in Lagos but have regional offices in Abuja, Ibadan, Enugu, Asaba, Kano and Port Harcourt.

We deliver innovative solutions to our customers, including making use of greenfield and rooftop sites, and developing rural telephony projects to connect the most remote communities in Nigeria. We operate two datacenters – in Lagos and Abuja – enabling us to support our Network Operating Centers with a high-quality IT infrastructure, robust security and a reliable network.
