VFE’s domestic roaming offer to TE is not the first

The offer Vodafone Egypt (VFE) submitted to Telecom Egypt (TE) on Sunday to allow it to use parts of its network was an amended version of an earlier offer, VFE’s External Affairs and Legal Director Ayman Essam said on Monday, Al Borsa reports. We noted yesterday that former TE CEO Tamer Gadallah indicated that the company was in “advanced stages” of talks with one of the MNOs, but refused to name the company. Both VFE and Orange Egypt had submitted technical offers for the agreement that would allow TE to use the MNOs existing network to offer 3G mobile services, and are expected to follow that up with financial offers within the coming few days.
