On the horizon

MNOs to meet with NTRA on Wednesday to redistribute 3G frequencies: The National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority will be meeting with the nation’s mobile network operators on Wednesday to discuss the geographic redistribution of 3G frequencies, Al Mal reports. MNOs are expecting to receive 4G frequencies this month once they redistribute frequencies and after Vodafone Egypt finalizes its domestic roaming agreement with Telecom Egypt.

We’ve heard this before: President Abdel Fattah El Sisi is expected to receive two of the four contracts for the USD 30 bn Dabaa nuclear power plant next week, now that Egypt and Russia have completed the negotiation process, Al Borsa reports. The contracts outline the terms for fuel storage and the technical operations and maintenance of the plant. Electricity Minister Mohamed Shaker had said last month that the four final contracts will be signed within two months.
