Summary
Asia-Pacific: Regulators and Opex Pressures Push Mobile Operators into Infrastructure Sharing, a Telecom Insider Report by Pyramid Research, analyzes the different types of infrastructure sharing setups prevalent in the Asia-Pacific region. It examines the factors driving telecom operators to share infrastructure, the obstacles to doing so and the threat of anticompetitive outcomes, and a brief comparison of Asia-Pacific with other regions. The report offers information on the prevalent forms infrastructure sharing takes, on recent deals involving passive and active sharing, on deals involving tower offloading by operators, and on the major tower companies in the region. The Insider provides three case studies to illustrate the various drivers and benefits involved in infrastructure sharing.

Key Findings
- Mobile infrastructure sharing can help telecom operators reduce their operating expenses by 20-30% and capital expenditures by as much as 40%. However, factors such as the physical landscape and the stage of mobile network deployment can make it difficult to forecast savings in absolute terms.

- In Asia-Pacific, most infrastructure sharing deals have been voluntary, although there are a few countries such as China where the regulator, aiming to optimize use of scarce resources, has made the sharing of passive infrastructure mandatory. In other countries - Hong Kong, Singapore - the regulator intervenes by directing operators to share infrastructure if overall it benefits citizens or the environment.

- Passive infrastructure sharing has remained more common in Asia-Pacific mainly because of its cost benefits, its relatively lower complexity and the unwillingness of bigger players to share their networks with smaller players.

- Active sharing is gaining momentum, driven by the need of LTE deployments for huge investments and the obligations, mainly pertaining to coverage, that governments impose through spectrum licenses.

- Tower offloading is a growing trend in Asia-Pacific: operators are selling or spinning off their tower assets to focus on their core businesses and to reduce costs.

Synopsis
