Islamic Republic wants fast growth in 3G services

Iran is to offer another 3G operating license in its telecoms sector after three years, the vice president of the CRA in Iran has said. Speaking to AMEInfo.com, Lotfollah Sabouhi said the current license has been awarded and will be exclusive for three years, after which a second operator will be introduced. “For sure I think we will open the market for another operator because we want fast growth in 3G services. But first of all this operator has this opportunity for the market, and after that we will open up the market for another operator,” Sabouhi stated.
