31 Jul 2007

The Iranian government is expected to offer another national cellular licence in 2008, two years after its last wireless auction which was won by IranCell. The research and development centre at the Ministry of Communications is ‘preparing the preliminaries of the auction’, Taliya News reports. Iran is currently home to around 20 million mobile subscribers, with the bulk of these served by state-owned TCI; national licences are also held by Taliya and IranCell.
