Cairo receives 700,000 new fixed lines
Egypt’s Ministry of Communications and Information Technology has established a new telecom project in Cairo. Officials inaugurated two new exchanges Nozha II and Manshiyyat Nasser with a capacity of 700,000 lines. In addition, new expansions were opened in the Moqattam Exchange using the digital par gain technology to end congestions in the network.
From October 1999 to October 2002, Telecom Egypt installed 943,000 lines with total investments of 1.5 billion Egyptian pounds, thus all Cairo exchanges are now open for direct contracting for fixed lines and all waiting lists have ended. — (menareport.com)
