Monday 20 May 2019 | 10:00 CET | News
Egyptian operator Etisalat Misr has set aside USD 167.3 million to modernise its network, ITWeb reported citing president and CEO Hazem Metwally. Metwally said the intention is to secure more revenue from internet services as the business works to offset the impact of a drop in subscriber numbers. The sum is more than half of the USD 251 million that the company plans to invest in Egypt in 2019.
