Telecom Egypt and Etisalat Misr announced the signing of an amendment of the national roaming agreement sealed in June 2017. The amendment provides better financial and service quality terms availing improved commercial conditions for Telecom Egypt. The latter is a result of the development of the volume of Telecom Egypt's data traffic.
The new agreement involves national roaming services on Etisalat's network for Telecom Egypt voice and data traffic. The agreement ends in December 2022.
The two companies also signed a letter of intent (LoI) for mobile termination rates, which included a preferential termination rate for Telecom Egypt. The LoI aims to put a framework for the interconnection rate between both operators and is considered the first arrangement on mobile interconnection for Telecom Egypt.
