Communications Authority Releases RFP for Telecom Licenses

The Ethiopian Communications Authority, the telecom and radio frequency regulator, launched a request for proposal (RFP) to issue full telecommunications licenses to two operators.

Issued on November 27 (2020), the RFP will remain open for 90 days. For the expression of interest the Authority announced last May, a total of 12 companies have expressed their intent to join the industry. Of the 12, one firm submitted incomplete documents.

The RFP includes investment considerations, bidder regulations and licenses to be awarded. The Authority plans to finalise the process and issue the licenses this coming March or April.

Companies that are interested in receiving the request for proposal are expected to make a written request to the Authority before December 10, 2020, and pay the RFP fee of 15,000 dollars.
