6 Sep 2017

Tunisia’s Ministry of Communication Technology and the Digital Economy (Ministere des Technologies de la Communication et de l’Economie Numerique, Mincom) has selected a consortium led by the Tunisian Internet Agency (Agence Tunisienne d’Internet, ATI) – the public company tasked with managing Tunisia’s internet exchange point (IXP) as well as the country’s domain name and IP addressing resources – as the winner of its tender for allocation of a new infrastructure provider license. According to Tunisie Haut Debit, the consortium comprises ATI (40%), Tunisian investment firm Meninx Holding (40%) – which owns several digital companies, including Eo Data Center, Eo Smart Building and Via Mobile – and an unnamed Turkish cable company (20%). The new infrastructure provider will offer high speeds services exclusively to telecom operators and ISPs, and will invest TND54 million (USD22.1 million) during its initial phase.
