Egypt’s telecoms operators will begin offering high-speed 4G mobile broadband services in September, telecomunication minister Yasser ElKady said on Monday.

The government had sold four 4G licenses in 2016 as part of a plan to reform the telecoms sector and raise dollars for stretched government finances.

The ministry would offer more wireless frequencies for sale at an unspecified later date, the minister told journalists.
