The Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) in Jordan has awarded a third class license to Pella, which is owned by Fastlink. The license entitles Pella to provide fixed line services, international calls VoIP and internet services. H.E Muna Nijem, CEO of TRC, signed the agreement on behalf of her organisation and Mohammed Saqer the CEO of Pella sealed the deal on behalf of his company. “The liberalisation of the Jordanian telecom market is proving its success and effectiveness day-by-day, the huge demand on the licenses is evidence that applicants for licenses believe in the abundant opportunities available in the telecom market which is enjoying fair competition under the umbrella of the TRC,” says H.E Nijem. “The TRC is helping fulfil the Kingdom’s development objectives through building investment and growth in ICT. We believe these investments are critical to us all. They are investments that will, in turn, bring other investments to Jordan in various sectors.” The agreement is another proof for the positive changes which will take place in the telecom’s sector in Jordan. Fastlink is a major force in Jordanian and the granting of a class license to the company’s subsidiary, Pella, has the potential to underpin a range of important new services and enhance the competition in an increasingly dynamic market that liberalisation is building in Jordan, according to Nijem.
