Egyptian regulator says heavy use hits telecom services in 57 areas in April

Thursday 4 June 2020 | 10:26 CET | News
Egypt's National Centre for ICT Services Quality Control at the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) said that 57 areas suffered weak communications services in April, the Daily News reported. The centre published quality measurements for operators' voice and internet services and said roughly 24 square kilometres in cities and populated areas in Egypt were tested. The centre attributed the weaker communications services to the significant increase in mobile usage rates as precautionary measures and the lockdown continue.
