Orange Jordan renews 2G licence for 5 years

May 19, 2014 11:25 am

Jordan’s Telecoms Regulatory Commission (TRC) has said it has approved a request by Orange Jordan to renew for five years its 2G licence in return for JD52.1m, a decision the company said it was “forced to accept,” Jordan Times has reported. The TRC had originally set a JD156m fee to renew Orange Jordan’s 2G licence for 15 years, which the operator described as “unreasonably high.” The regulator said the door remains open for Orange Jordan to submit a request to renew its 2G licence for an additional 10 years for a fee that can be decided at a later stage.
