Bowmans advised Wireless Business Solutions in relation to its multi-billion rand investment in a new national ‘high-speed LTE-A’ network. The new network will be deployed on some of WBS’ own 400 sites and sites leased from tower companies and other telecommunications providers. It will be enabled to support 5G when the technology is rolled out internationally in the next five years, and will place South Africa among the leaders in the field. We also advised RMB in relation to the due diligence investigations into the transaction concluded between WBS and Vodacom to determine the ‘conditionality’ and ‘bankability’ of the agreements between them as a prerequisite for the funding of the transaction by RMB.
