Ahram Online, Saturday 28 May 2011

$17.25 million is to be paid for compensation by the ministry of communications and information for mobile phone company's losses during Egypt’s January 25 Revolution: Minister Maged Osman

Egypt’s Minister of Communications and Information Maged Osman says the ministry intends to pay Egypt’s mobile phone companies around LE100 million ($17.25 million) in compensation for their losses during the January 25 Revolution.
Cellular phone and internet services were cut off in the early days of the revolt protests by order of the regime that the revolution was trying to oust and eventually did oust ex-president Hosni Mubarak.

Former president Hosni Mubarak and ex-ministers Habib El-Adli and former PM Ahmed Nazif have been fined $90.64 million after being found accountable for the deliberate cut in communications.
