Vodafone Egypt declared 98 percent readiness to receive and provide 4G service once the Egyptian government released it into the market.
The company is negotiating with the Egyptian telecom regulator, the National Telecom Regulatory Authority to obtain licences for releasing new 4G service.
A week earlier, the Egyptian cabinet previously approved ensuring licences for new 4G frequencies in accordance with NTRA’s standards. The NTRA will be responsible for the preparation of licences including the financial and technical commitments in compliance with rules and regulations of Communications Regulation Act No. 10/2003.
This comes within the framework of telecommunication sector development plan that is expected to put Egypt on top of countries providing 4G telecommunications services. The decision aims to increase government resources and improve services provided to citizens.
