Tunisiana gets 3G licence
Tunisiana has become Tunisia’s third 3G and landline license holder.
This comes after the company’s bid for the licence was rejected last month.
In announcing the rejection, the Minister of Information and Communication Technologies, Mongi Marzouk, said Tunisiana had offered to purchase the landline license for 36 million dinars and the 3G license for 125 million dinars.
The Ministry earlier accepted the company’s proposed terms for network quality.
Tunisiana revised its bid, offering USD 132 million for the licences. This has been accepted. The company must launch 3G services by July and fixed-line services from early next year.
