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.

Regulations

In fulfillment of MCIT strategy for building Digital Egypt, telecommunication services have evolved as one of the main drivers for the socio-economic development.
 
The Egyptian government has been keen on coping up with these technological leaps and move toward a new state-of-the-art ecosystem. The government gave priority to the development of the ICT sector. This was reflected in a deregulated and healthy environment for the Egyptian ICT services.

The Telecommunication Regulation Law No. 10/2003 has stipulated the establishment of a regulatory body, namely the National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) as a national authority competent and responsible for the administration and regulation of the telecommunication sector, considering transparency, open competition, universal service and protection of user rights as general outlines for NTRA scope of work.
 
According to the Telecommunication Regulation Law, investors and telecommunication service providers are obligated to comply with NTRA regulations and standards in order to be able to join the market or launch a new service. The Law empowers NTRA to determine the limits that, if exceeded, will lead to the breach of the free competition rules and to the setting of instructions and remedies in such cases.
