Egypt's government has approved a long-awaited plan to issue a unified landline and mobile licence, opening the way for fixed-line monopoly Telecom Egypt to offer mobile services, reports Reuters. The government has also set up a committee comprising representatives from the ministries of telecommunications, finance, investment, commerce and others, to look at the best way for Telecom Egypt to exit Vodafone Egypt. Telecom Egypt was originally given a year to sell its 45 percent stake in Vodafone Egypt, once the unified licence was activated. The government said Telecom Egypt would now have to sell the stake by December 2015. The unified licence had been due to be activated on 30 June, but that date passed without implementation. In May, Telecom Egypt agreed to pay EGP 2.5 billion for permission to offer mobile services. It has been waiting for the details of the unified licence to be finalised. Egypt's three existing mobile service providers, Vodafone Egypt, Mobinil and Etisalat Egypt, will also gain the right to enter the market for fixed-line services, using Telecom Egypt's network. More»

Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, the world's biggest mobile phone maker, unveiled new versions of its Galaxy Note smartphone on Wednesday after previous design miscues cost it customers in the large-screen phone market it pioneered. The new Galaxy Note 4 features a crisper, 5.7-inch display in a metal frame, reflecting Samsung's latest design strategy to keep pace with rivals including Apple Inc, which is expected to launch its first large-screen phones next week. The new model offers accessories designed to attract gamers and an improved pen stylus and related software as a handwriting alternative to typing on a keyboard. It boasts easier to use multi-tasking features that take advantage of its large screen. The Note 4 is key to a recovery by Samsung Electronics, which faced initial derision at the idea of callers holding elephantine screens up to their ears. Since the Note's introduction in 2011, it has made 5-inch and larger screen sizes the standard for high-end phones as usage shifted overwhelmingly to reading and writing texts and emails or documents, using apps, watching movies or playing games rather than calling.

National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (NTRA) approved to issue two licenses for international calls for Vodafone and Mobinil (EMOB) in the first stage of the unified license, according to sources inside NTRA. The move would allow landline monopoly Telecom Egypt (ETEL-CA)(TE)  to transform into a "integrated” operators. The NTRA will allow the licenses for the two mobile operators without activation for two years to protect Telecom Egypt and insure an income in that period when providing mobile service, sources told Youm7 newspaper. Vodafone and Mobinil will pay EGP1.8 billion, EGP1.5 billion respectively, sources revealed. The mobile operators depend on the international gateway by Telecom Egypt  to provide international phone calls, and refused to buy the license after protesting terms issued by the NTRA 5 years ago which was considered "unfair", while Etisalat obtained the license since initiating its Egyptian unit.

Telecom Italia has lost a promising path to earnings growth by failing to secure Brazilian broadband business GVT and may now turn from hunter to hunted in a fast-consolidating telecoms industry. Winning the auction for French media company Vivendi's GVT was vital for both Telecom Italia and its rival, Spain's Telefonica, as their European markets have been shrinking. Italy was gripped by a mobile price war for much of last year, revenue is falling and competition remains tough. Telecom Italia lost out to Telefonica as it could not afford to top its 7.45-billion-euro offer for GVT. Telecom Italia has debts of 32 billion euros ($42 billion) according to Moody's, and lost its investment-grade credit rating last year. Buying GVT would have solved Telecom Italia's biggest weakness in Brazil - the fact that its mobile business lacks the broadband networks of its local rivals. It may now consider exiting the country, where it makes a third of its revenue, helping it pay some of its debts but leaving it even more reliant on a sluggish domestic market. Seven bankers and investors interviewed by Reuters on Friday portrayed Telecom Italia as a company without a clear direction that would struggle to raise fresh cash from shareholders to fund important network improvements.

A judge on Friday lifted a suspension on her order directing Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) to turn over a customer's emails stored overseas to U.S. prosecutors, but the software company said it would not release any emails while it appeals the ruling. Chief Judge Loretta Preska of the U.S. District Court in Manhattan had on July 31 upheld a magistrate judge's ruling on the emails, which have been held in a data center in Ireland. That prospect had drawn concern from technology companies - fearful of losing revenue from foreign customers worried that U.S. law enforcement might win broad power to seize their data.Microsoft in particular was stung by revelations last year by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden and has been at pains to prove to customers that it does not allow the U.S. government unchallenged access to personal data on its servers. Preska had delayed enforcement of the government's search warrant so Microsoft could appeal. More»
