“Connectivity has never held greater importance than it does today. Accessibility to reliable and affordable connectivity is a commodity in today’s climate. With a strong foothold across eight markets in South and Southeast Asia, edotco as an independent tower company plays a significant role in a bigger movement to accelerate the recovery of the industry, while continuing to enhance it with the latest technology in infrastructure sharing,” said Adlan.
