Omantel accepts Iran third operator project conditions

Tehran, May 16. MOBNA – After dismissing Etisalat from Iran third mobile phone operator project, Omantel announced that it accepts Iran conditions to enter this project.

Omantel had ranked third winner of Iran third operator tender after Etisalat and Zain Kuwait.
Currently Radio Communication and Regulations Organization is studying Zains conditions to enter in this project. Since Zain proposed price defers 30 percent with Etisalat proposed price, it seems that winning Zain Kuwait in third operator is not certain.
According to tender winner, second winner proposition difference with first winner should not be less than five percent.
Telecommunication minister had announced dismissing Etisalat from third operator project because is did not fulfill its commitments.
The operator was selected as third operator winner on 12 January 2009.
