TE signs two agreements with Etisalat, one week to 4G (Isa)

TE announced signing two five-year agreements with Etisalat Misr for local roaming and international voice services. The first allows TE to use Etisalat’s infrastructure to offer 2G, 3G, and 4G services, while the second lets Etisalat use TE’s international gates for overseas voice services. TE signed a similar agreement with Orange Egypt in April and is reportedly still in talks with Vodafone Egypt. The country’s MNOs will be receiving their 4G frequencies this week, ICT Minister Yasser El Kadi told the press on Saturday, according to Al Mal. The companies had reached an agreement with Telecom Egypt (TE) officials last week over the geographic redistribution of 3G frequencies, which the ICT Ministry had set as a prerequisite to the activation of 4G services. The agreement is only missing El Kadi’s signature, sources tell the newspaper.
