After much awaited anticipation, Telecom Egypt who has changed the landline of the 10th of Ramadan city from 015 to 0554, has finally decided to launch the city's old code (015) as the new fourth mobile network "WE", in Egypt. This new service will surely revive and boost Egypt's economy.
The fourth mobile network is available with the technologies of 2G and 3G, and 4G experimentally. The SIM cards for the new mobile network were available for purchase from 8pm Monday and the pre-paid cards for the fourth mobile network will be available for distribution by 15 October. Moreover, the mobile internet service provided by WE will cost EGP 10 for 1GB, EGP 20 for 2.5GB, EGP 40 for 6GB, EGP 100 for 18GB, and EGP 200 for 40GB.
It's worth mentioning that Telecom Egypt has a monopoly on landlines in the country; however, there are three other mobile service providers in Egypt: Orange, Vodafone and Etisalat.
The high-speed 4G service is set to be officially activated for all four mobile services by the National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority within weeks.
