As part of plans to increase network efficiency and provide improved quality services, Telecom Egypt (TE) has confirmed that it now expects some four million customers to receive their fixed line communication services via fibre-based technologies by the end of 2015. Having previously said it would invest in upgrading its nationwide access network from copper-based technologies, it has confirmed that around two million of its approximately seven million fixed line subscribers have benefited from infrastructure improvements that it has carried out.

With the telco having listed a number of exchanges where it expects to work to be carried out in the future, Daily News Egypt cite areas which will benefit from the network upgrades this year as including: East Cairo, New Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, North Coast, East Delta, Mid-Delta, Northern Upper Egypt, Central Upper Egypt and South Upper Egypt.
