Telecom Egypt Company (WE) signed a commercial agreement with Orange Data for three years to offer infrastructure and transmission services through Telecom Egypt`s network.
The agreement was signed by Telecom Egypt`s managing director and CEO Ahmed el-Beheiry and Chief Executive Officer of Orange Egypt for Telecommunications S.A.E. Jean Marc Harion.
The agreement stipulates that Orange Data will use Telecom Egypts fixed internet services network.
Telecom Egypts statement pointed out that there is no immediate financial effect of this agreement, but its expected to increase the companys revenues on the middle term as the pricing of the new services depends on the quota.
Telecom Egypt`s managing director Beheiry said the agreement will boost the strategic partnership and the volume of trade exchange between the two companies, adding that it will also maximize benefits accrued from the current growth in the data usage rates.
For his part, Chief Executive Officer of Orange Egypt Harion hoped that the agreement will help in removing all hurdles to fixed internet access services.

The agreement with Vodafone guaranteed minimum revenue of LE 2.37 billion for Telecom Egypt over the tenure of the agreement.
