Telecommunications in Africa

Gehan Rachty

Oxford University Press

At the start of the mid-1980s, reforms in the telecommunications industry had a positive influence on the economic progress and social welfare of Egypt. During the 1990s, this progress continued. Studies to prove this were conducted since there was insufficient documentation and empirical evidence prior to 1989. This chapter discusses the following: Egypt's early development in telecommunications during and following the colonial period; the importance and structure of the state-governed institutions involved in this sector in terms of planning and executing of modern policies; and the essential steps and challenges of the modernization of Egypt's telecommunications during the 19th century and onwards.
