Telecom Egypt could have mobile licence by end of April
Company’s CEO says regulator approval imminent
Telecom Egypt’s CEO has revealed that the country’s interim government is about to grant the fixed-line provider with a mobile services licence, Al Arabia reports.
Mohamed el-Nawawy said the licence could be issued as soon as next month.
In December 2013 TeleGeography cited media reports from within Egypt that suggested the nation’s telecoms regulator was close to issuing a unified telecoms licence to Telecom Egypt, following a number of delays.
“We are in the final stages,” Hesham el-Alaily, head of the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) was quoted as saying in reference to the licence, while attending an economic conference in Cairo.
