4G Mobile Services Launch in Egypt

The Fourth Generation (4G) mobile services were officially launched in Egypt, in a celebration organized by the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA), on September 28, at Giza Pyramids. The ICT Minister Yasser ElKady has delivered a speech during the celebration, attended by a large number of ministers, statesmen, ICT sector officials, public and media figures.

With this official launch, Egypt joins the ranks of the countries that provide 4G services, offering high speed Internet access, image and video transmission services without the need for temporary data buffering, advanced cloud computing services and other telecom services. This will be reflected positively on providing high quality services for subscribers, improving Egypt’s ranking in the indicators of the reports issued by international institutions, especially that Egypt was one of the six countries in the world that hasn’t provided the 4G services yet.

Thanks to the provision of theses 4G licenses to the four telecoms, about  1.1 billion dollars, in addition to 10 billion Egyptian pounds, were injected into the state’s treasury.
