Jordan Telecom raises concerns about 3G licences

22 June 2010

Jordan Telecom Group has warned the kingdom's telecoms regulator against granting mobile operators licences to provide Third Generation (3G) services, Jordan Times has reported. The Telecoms Regulatory Commission (TRC) will be in violation of the JTG's contract as exclusive 3G provider for one year, a term that ends in mid-February 2011, the firm said. "No licence should be given to any operator before the year of exclusivity ends. We have information that the TRC has already received JD50m from Zain to provide it with a licence," JTG CEO, Nayla Khawam told reporters last week. "The decision to grant the licence to another operator is wrong and the TRC left us with no choice but to resort to legal channels," Khawam said.
