Du given deadline

21 Dec 2006

The Telecoms Regulatory Authority (TRA) in the United Arab Emirates has warned that it may take action against cellco Du if it has not launched services by 12 February 2008, the first anniversary of the award of its licence. The regulator said it was too early to speculate what sanctions might be taken against the country’s second mobile operator, but a daily fine had not been ruled out. Du responded by saying that a launch date would be announced imminently.
