Orange to provide mobile roaming for Telecom Egypt
Former Mobinil to provide national roaming as Telecom Egypt builds mobile network under new licence
Orange Egypt is to provide rival operator Telecom Egypt with national roaming services for 2G, 3G and 4G. But Telecom Egypt is also building its own mobile network under a licence granted in August 2016.
Orange Egypt – formerly Mobinil until rebranded in 2016 – will also use Telecom Egypt’s infrastructure transmission services for five years at the total cost of $137 billion.
Ahmed El Beheiry, new managing director and CEO of Telecom Egypt, said: “This agreement signals the strength of our commercial cooperation with Orange Egypt. We have reached commercial terms on 2G, 3G and 4G access as well as transmission services.”
