Telecom Egypt expects 5m mobile users in first year

31 Mar 2014

Telecom Egypt (TE) expects to sign up around five million mobile subscribers in its first year of offering wireless services, Daily News Egypt reports, citing Mohamed Kamel, the telco’s general manager for investor relations and international reporting.

In addition, the report notes that a conference at which the Ministry of Communications & Information Technology (MCIT) will formally announce plans to award a unified telecoms licence to the fixed line incumbent – as well as to mobile operators Vodafone, Etisalat and MobiNil – will take place on 2 April. The conference had been expected to take place last week, but was postponed in line with a delay to the National Telecoms Regulatory Authority’s (NTRA’s) board of directors meeting which was made due to ‘urgent circumstances’.
