The main advantages of our business model: (*) Saving our tenants time by providing an existing telecom ready facility, allowing them to deploy faster, (*) Saving our clients CAPEX and Financing expenses by providing an existing telecom ready infrastructure, (*) Offering very attractive tower lease fee since towers are used by several operators, (*) Eliminates the need for managing landlord, maintenance process & all necessary agreements, approvals and legalization with authorities.” said Zafer Ozbay, General Director of UkrTower.
