This was revealed by the companies today.
Bharti Airtel will lease back the towers from Eaton under a 10-year contract, the companies said in a statement. They did not disclose financial details of the deal.
In July, Bharti Airtel agreed to sell about 3,100 masts in four African countries to Helios Towers Africa.
The sales are part of the Indian group’s plan to divest most of its more than 15,000 towers in Africa in a process that sources have said could raise up to $2 billion.
