Telecoms

The liberalization of Algeria’s telecoms sector has been fixed for April of this year. The Minister of Posts, IT and Communications Amadou Tou admitted that current transmission capacity was weak and that the solution was the liberalisation of the sector. He admitted that though they had come to this conclusion a little late the total liberalisation of the sector was vital to the growth of fixed and mobile telephony in the country.
