Inwit ready to manage towers on behalf of Iliad - CEO

Tuesday 16 August 2016 | 09:31 CET | News
Telecom Italia's tower unit Infrastrutture Wireless Italiane (Inwit) would be prepared to manage towers on behalf of Iliad if the French telecom group enters the Italian market, according to Inwit CEO Oscar Cicchetti. "If Iliad wished to entrust those assets to a specialised firm, we would be very interested," said Cicchetti in an interview with Italian business daily Il Sole 24 Ore, adding that he's keeping a close eye on the potential merger of Wind and 3 Italia and the resulting divestment of frequencies and infrastructure assets to Iliad.
