Egyptian ICT minister, Amr Talaat, has inaugurated a national ICT monitoring centre, which is affiliated with the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA), notes Ecofin. “With this new development, the Egyptian government is confirming its ambition to improve the quality of telecoms and internet services provided to citizens. The government says it will take all necessary measures to encourage telecoms companies to maintain a high level of performance.” The monitoring centre will periodically measure the quality of voice and internet services provided by operating in Egypt.
Services will be measured in 94 areas, 70 main roads and 25 public gathering spaces nationwide, such as shopping malls and high-density government institutions. Data will be made available to the public through the monthly reports published on the NTRA website. “According to Amr Talaat, the centre’s construction required a financial investment of EGP50 million. In addition, NTRA has partnered with the German company Rohde and Schwarz, which specialises in testing and measuring ICT services, to acquire the expertise needed.” The first report measuring the quality of ICT services will be released in September.
