Ethiopian Communications Authority decides to extend the deadline for submission of bids for the two telecom operating licenses to April 26, 2021.
“Due to requests by bidders to have more time to finalize their offer in light COVID-19 market environment, ECA is determined their questions to be appropriate,” the Authority said in its statement released today.
Originally, the deadline for the bid was on March 5, 2021, but it was extended by the Authority, citing a request made by the Authority.
Dozens of telecom operators have shown their interest to acquire the two telecom licenses so far. This includes Safaricom, Orange, MTN, Etisalat, and Sharing Mobile, among others.
