Cellnex to rent out Italian towers to Iliad - report

Monday 19 February 2018 | 09:58 CET | News
Spanish operator Cellnex Telecom has reached an agreement to rent out capacity on the 7,766 towers it owns in Italy to the new mobile venture of French operator Iliad, reports Il Sole 24 Ore. The companies have been negotiating an outsourcing deal since Iliad announced it would be entering the Italian market in 2016 via assets acquired as a result of the merger of CK Hutchison and VimpelCom's units. Iliad has yet to provide a launch date for its Italian operation but last month announced the appointment of 29-year-old Benedetto Levi as the CEO of Iliad Italia.
