IHS extends contract with MTN Nigeria with increased focus on rural connectivity

IHS Netherlands Holdco B.V. has announced that its affiliates INT Towers Limited, IHS Nigeria Limited and IHS Towers NG Limited have reached agreement with MTN Nigeria Communications Plc to expand the scope of the current service contract and amend the currency conversion provision for tower services.

IHS has concluded a renegotiation of certain terms of its tower rental agreements with MTN Nigeria. These include an increased focus on rural connectivity and fiber access. Furthermore, the changes will result in updated pricing for future technology upgrades and backhaul in the network, whilst agreeing to move the reference rates for conversions to Naira from the Central Bank of Nigeria’s official rate to the Nigerian Autonomous Foreign Exchange rate.
