Telecommunication Service Regulatory Framework

In the last few years, the telecommunication industry in Egypt witnessed a number of significant changes that revolutionized it, hence boosted the telecommunication sector’s revenues and led to a rise in the number of mobile and Internet subscribers, whereas the fixed line segment experienced a slower growth path.

Regulatory policies are the sector’s backbone and it is the core mission and mandate of NTRA to regulate the telecommunication market, hence encourage the national and international investment within free competition rules.

In October 2017, NTRA published the licensing framework of the telecommunication services provided in the Egyptian telecommunication market. It aims to identify the procedures for obtaining a telecommunication license in Egypt in order to establish a telecommunication network and/or provide a telecommunication service. Different types of telecommunication licenses in Egypt are identified in the framework, including a number of main categories specified in the document. In addition, the framework details the terms, conditions and requirements for applying to NTRA to be awarded a telecommunication license. Moreover, the regulatory framework sets forth the major technical, financial, commercial and legal rights and obligations of the Licensee.
