EdgePoint Philippines Appoints William Walters as New Chief Executive Officer

“It is truly dynamic times for us here! In May 2020, the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) published its first guidelines to an independent Common Tower Policy and it has enabled more foreign investments, eased local partnerships and improved the deployment of telecommunications infrastructure. A target of 50,000 towers for the next seven to ten years was set and we are steadily progressing towards this target, as of May 2023 there are approximately 22,650 cell towers in the country which is almost half. EdgePoint has a great team in country, and I am excited to continue supporting our customers’ connectivity expansion plans by identifying potential sites for new telecom towers as well as providing a network of suitable sites for co-location”. ~William Walters, New EdgePoint Philippines Chief Executive Officer
