NTRA releases mobile QoS report of Egypt’s four service operators
The National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) has released its first quality of service (QoS) report (pdf) on Egypt’s four mobile networks in two years, measuring their performance in delivering voice and data services in the country’s main cities throughout July 2019. The data — which was compiled through tens of thousands of test calls — revealed that state-owned WE falls back on voice quality, falling below Orange, according to a local press rundown of key findings. Both WE and Etisalat networks are prone to failed calls in Cairo and Giza, while Orange is prone to the same in the Canal region. Vodafone, with the exception of a high rate of dropped calls in the Delta, performed better across the board.
