Africa telecom and finance leaders to meet in London to assess new digital investment opportunity

CENTRAL LONDON, England - March 9, 2017 - TelAve -- Leaders from Africa's biggest telecom and tech companies including MTN, Orange, Liquid Telecom, Seacom, Helios and Atlas Mara are meeting with investment bankers, investors and advisers in London on May 24 to discuss new investment opportunities in digital communications and infrastructure.

Telecom and tech companies are increasing investment across Africa as the rapidly improving digital infrastructure and services, and the take up of smartphones, provide huge opportunities for business and revenue growth.

"Telecom and tech companies are ramping up their Africa investment plans to meet demand," commented an investment banker focused on Africa. "On the infrastructure side, operators are investing in spectrum, especially in the 700MHz band, as well as strengthening their networks by migrating from 3G to 4G LTE-based services. Mobile tower operators are also investing heavily while submarine and terrestrial cable providers have been increasing the available backbone infrastructure."
"Improving broadband speeds and access is also having a big impact on both business to business and consumer focused opportunities. Datacenter investment appetite is growing and Smartphone take-up is supporting the growth in m-commerce, m-money and m-banking services which presents a massive opportunity for vendors and application providers."
