Iliad's Free and Digicel to share mobile masts in French Antilles and Guiana

Tuesday 26 May 2020 | 12:18 CET | News
Iliad's subsidiary Free has joined Digicel as a new shareholder in Madiacom, a Guadeloupe-based company created to pool assets from Digicel Antilles Francaises Guyane, reports Universfreebox citing local news source Interentreprises. As part of the deal, Free will gain access to over 200 mobile masts in the French Antilles and Guiana, in a move that will help the operator achieve its deployment targets in the region. The mobile masts have been used by Digicel under a leaseback agreement signed with Phoenix Tower International (PTI) in 2018, as part of the sale of the infrastructure.
