MTN Nigeria updates towers deal with IHS

Monday 27 July 2020 | 09:40 CET | News
MTN Nigeria has reached an agreement with IHS Towers to expand the scope of their current service agreements and amend the currency conversion provision for tower services.

The changes will result in improved cost for future technology evolution and backhaul in the network, the company said.
