The National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) approved, on Monday, the establishment and operation of 173 new mobile towers in five governorates, in order to improve service quality in the affected areas.
It added in a press statement that it had carried out a series of judicial seizures in the Delta region, and Alexandria and Cairo governorates, to control the non-conforming network boosters that affect the quality of communication services, and more than 300 non-conforming antenna boosters were seized. This led to an improvement in the quality of voice services by 40% and data transmission services by 70% in the affected areas after removing these devices from them.
Meanwhile, the National Center for Quality Control of Communications Services at NTRA issued, on Monday, its report for the second quarter of 2021.
