This paper from the GSMA is based upon a series of interviews with mobile network operators and infrastructure providers, a literature review and analysis of existing examples of site sharing. Its purpose is to set out some of the key themes associated with infrastructure sharing and to provoke discussion on this issue. It is not intended to provide a definitive view on the advantages and disadvantages of particular aspects of network sharing. While it does not relate to digital money, it is important to understand the mechanics at play for a mobile network.
