Tunisia to open MVNO market

Sunday 7 April 2013 | 22:25 CET | News
Tunisia's national assembly has adopted a bill that amends and completes its telecommunications act, Agence Ecofin reports. The new law will enable MVNOs to enter the market, with licence terms set to be ready in two weeks, said ICT minister Mongi Marzoug. To date only Elissa, which uses Tunisie Telecom's network, can be described as an MVNO. Marzoug said that authorising MVNOs will give rise to complementary telecom services, and will lighten and promote investment in a market that is too small for a fourth MNO. The new law sets up different processes for the bandwidths used by the military and security forces, and those overseen by the national frequencies agency. Other areas addressed include the maximum fines operators can be ordered to pay.

Dear All, I wish it will be an equal opportunity, I mean MVNO license granting.
