Iranian operators speak out against 2% tax increase

14 Mar 2022

Iranian telcos MTN Irancell and Telecommunication Company of Iran (TCI) have spoken out against the government’s plan to impose a further 2% tax on operator revenues, which they say would hinder the development of the sector. ICTNA cites Irancell CEO Bijan Abbasi Arend as saying that the government move is ‘legally doubtful’, while it would also divert funds away from the construction and upgrade of network infrastructure.
