Frequently Asked Questions

Is there any government supervision exercised on mobile phone networks?

Yes, there is strict supervision from various government entities on mobile networks as is the case for all communication bodies and networks in Egypt.

The National Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (NTRA) is responsible for reviewing all network components prior to issuing their licenses. It is also responsible for issuing protocols for installation of mobile network base stations anywhere in the nation as well as conducting measurement checks on existing base stations to ensure their compliance.

The Ministry of health is also involved in dictating health conditions to ensure safety of human beings around or below mobile base stations on a regular basis. The Ministry of the Environment sets environmental conditions for all base stations whether previously or currently installed and offers a licensing procedure for them.

It is worth noting that all measurements made on base station antennae radiation are often much lower than the permissible national and international limits of [0.4 MW/ cm2].
