Siemens Communications has announced it has signed a Global Frame Agreement with Mobitel Sudan, part of MTC Group, to supply 2.5G radio wireless infrastructure in a deal worth US$25 million.

The products are equipped with the latest GSM and EDGE features, which provide the consumer with high quality voice and high-speed data.

"This agreement reinforces our commitment to providing the most up to date telecommunications technologies to consumers across the region.

Mobitel is a market leader, with a market share of nearly 70% and we are particularly proud of our long standing relationship with MTC," commented Jan Cron, vice president, Siemens Communications Mobile Networks Middle East" In February, MTC reached an agreement with Sudatel to purchase 61% of Mobitel.

MTC subsidiary Celtel International already owned a 39% share of Mobitel.

MTC thus owns 100% of the operator and as of end-2005, the operator counted 2 million subscribers, an increase of 79% over 2004.

Sudan falls under the MTC Group rather than Celtel.
