Egypt’s telecoms minister, Atef Helmy has said the country’s long awaited unified telecoms licence for both mobiles and landlines will be activated before June 30, Reuters has reported. The licence would allow telecoms companies to operate fixed-line and mobile networks, which would in turn allow Egypt’s fixed-line monopoly Telecom Egypt to offer mobile services.
