Ubuntu Towers Uganda is now TowerCo of Africa Uganda

Ubuntu Towers Uganda has announced the successful completion of its rebranding to TowerCo of Africa Uganda, which is 90% owned by TowerCo of Africa (TOA).

TOA is a fully owned subsidiary of pan-African telecommunications service provider Axian Telecom, which is also in today’s news after increasing its stake in Senegalese operator Free.

Geoffrey Donnels Oketayot, CEO at TowerCo of Africa Uganda, has been quoted as saying: “Our rebranding represents a transfer of the positive legacy from Ubuntu Towers to the TowerCo of Africa brand. It also marks an important milestone in our evolution, which is punctuated by our ambition to be the best green passive infrastructure solutions provider in Uganda.”

TowerCo of Africa Uganda has rolled out towers across approximately 360 sites – nearly all of them equipped with hybrid energy solutions – and expects this number to grow significantly in the coming years.

TOA says it is one of Africa’s fastest-growing tower infrastructure companies, with operations in Madagascar, Uganda, the DRC and Tanzania. TowerCo of Africa embarked on its venture in Madagascar in 2011. Over the course of the following decade, it steadily expanded its pan-African operations through build-to-suit passive infrastructure in order to meet the growing demand for a better-connected Africa.

TOA says that by embracing next-generation innovations, it actively contributes to a carbon-neutral tower infrastructure.
