Telecom Egypt announced signing four agreements with Etisalat Misr to enable the latter to provide virtual fixed voice and bit-stream services to its customers through TE’s network.
Under the bit-stream agreements, fixed broadband customers of Etisalat Misr will be provided with the new very high speed digital subscriber line (VDSL) technology, Telecom Egypt said in a statement on Sunday.
“The [fixed virtual network operator (FVNO)] agreements enable Etisalat Misr to provide its customers with a new service, while Telecom Egypt will enhance its revenues generated from the domestic wholesale business supported by the increase in Etisalat Misr’s customer base,” Telecom Egypt’s managing director and CEO, Adel Hamed, noted.
“These agreements fall within Etisalat’s strategy to provide the latest and best quality integrated services to its customers in Egypt utilising the latest technology developed globally,” Etisalat Misr’s CEO, Hazem Metwally, said.
Etisalat plans to launch a slew of products and services for the first time in the Egyptian market in the coming period, based on the country’s “most powerful mobile network and the fastest mobile phone and landline technology,” Metwally revealed.
