In December 2008, DPI invested in Q-Venture and later acquired Eaton Telecom Infrastructure, merging the two companies to create Eaton Towers, an independent tower company that operates shared telecommunications infrastructure across Africa.

By 2019, Eaton Towers had 5,700 towers across Ghana, Uganda, Kenya, Burkina Faso and Niger, and was serving Africa’s largest mobile operators including MTN, Airtel, Vodacom, Vodafone and Orange.

DPI agreed to sell Eaton Towers to American Tower in December 2019, with an estimated EV of USD1.85b.
