Vodafone, Orange submit domestic roaming offer to TE

Vodafone Egypt and Orange Egypt have submitted technical offers to Telecom Egypt (TE) to allow it to use parts of their networks in a domestic roaming agreement, unnamed sources tell Al Mal. The agreement would allow TE to offer 3G mobile services using the existing MNOs’ networks. Vodafone Egypt is expected to follow up its technical offer with a financial one within days, sources added. Former CEO Tamer Gadalla had said TE was in “advanced stages” of negotiations with one of the MNOs, which he refused to name, over an agreement for domestic roaming. There were no details provided on whether Etisalat Misr is part of this agreement or not.
