CAIRO, Oct 17 (Reuters) - Vodafone Egypt will pay half of the fee for its 4G mobile licence in dollars, a company official told Reuters on Wednesday, one day after the company signed a licence agreement with Egypt’s telecoms regulator.
The company paid 1.5 billion Egyptian pounds ($168.92 million) for the licence on October 15 and will be paying the remaining fee within days in coordination with its parent company, the official, who declined to be identified, said.
