9 May 2007

Etisalat will launch its Afghanistan operations in July, according to its chief executive Mohammad Al Qamzi. Al Qamzi added that the network would focus on low-tech voice and text services. The launch data announcement comes just days after the inauguration of the group’s Egyptian operation Etisalat Misr. Two weeks ago Etisalat also upped its stake in Atlantique Telecom from 50% to 70%; Atlantique has mobile operations in seven central and west African nations.
