Why Egypt?

Why Egypt?

Egypt’s geographical positioning plays a fundamental role in the connectivity of the global network infrastructure. By sitting between the great landmasses of Africa, the Middle East and Europe, the transcontinental connectivity hub acts as a pivotal communications transit route.

With the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology currently leading Egypt’s digital transformation initiative focusing on the countries telecom infrastructure, the future for the Egyptian and North African carrier market is set to see exciting new projects, new investors and new technical developments.
