ATC aims to be a major player in common tower industry, plans 500 towers a year

Alliance Towers Corp. (ATC) plans to build 500 towers a year as part of its goal to become a major player in the common tower industry.

Formerly known as ALT Global Solutions Inc., ATC has built over 40 towers at the height of the pandemic.

With the Philippines needing to build 50,000 towers to meet its current shortfall, ALT plans to accelerate its expansion to help improve digital connectivity.

“As the country adapts to the rapidly changing times, ATC aims to be a major player in the common tower industry, helping its telco partners provide better service, and the country progress towards a more connected nation,” ATC president and COO Alvin Tolentino said.

ATC was recognized in 2019 by the Department of Information and Communications Technology as a licensed digital infrastructure company.

Since then, it has forged partnerships with the largest telecom companies in the country, including Smart, Globe, and DITO.

“We acknowledge our role in the success of the country’s digital transformation and advancement. This is why we have selected a management team who has a proven track record in the tech and telecommunications industry to lead our programs and initiatives in building digital infrastructures,” said Sherwin Hing, ATC chairman and CEO.
