Cellnex closes acquisition of over 9,000 CK Hutchison's towers in Italy

Thursday 1 July 2021 | 09:51 CET | News
Spanish infrastructure operator Cellnex said it has closed the acquisition of CK Hutchison's telecommunications tower assets in Italy following last month's approval from the country's competition authority AGCM. The watchdog cleared the deal covering around 9,100 sites after the Spanish operator agreed to make available a certain number of sites at market conditions to the country's FWA (Fixed Wireless Access) operators and to "newcomers" (MNO operators authorised to manage a mobile telecommunications network in the last 5 years) in localities with less than 35,000 inhabitants.
