Telecommunications

Seeking to build Digital Egypt and achieve the transition into a digital society, the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) has been working to build an infrastructure that is secure, reliable and accessible.

 

MCIT prioritizes the maintenance of a strong, adaptive infrastructure; the development and convergence of technologies; and the safeguarding of a regulatory framework conducive both to investment in and growth of the ICT sector.

 

The National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) was further empowered by the Telecommunication Regulation Law No. 10/2003. NTRA acts as the independent regulatory authority overseeing the telecommunications sector in Egypt, improving its services and expanding its usage.
