Egypt’s four mobile network operators will receive their 4G frequencies this month
Egypt’s four mobile network operators will receive their 4G frequencies this month (inshallah), a source from the ICT Ministry tells Al Mal. There are rumors printed by the newspaper which suggest that the MNOs and state entities have set a deadline of 30 June to receive their full frequencies. There was no word yet whether the CIT Ministry had successfully reached an agreement with security entities to free up additional frequencies. Minister Yasser El Kady had said that MNOs will receive their frequencies upon all of them signing domestic roaming agreements with Telecom Egypt (TE). Delays in reaching an agreement with all three MNOs was reportedly the reason behind why 4G has not been successfully launched yet, sources tell Youm7. The sole holdout right now is Vodafone Egypt, which is expected to sign a domestic roaming agreement with TE this week.
