The TRA is legally mandated to liberalize the telecommunications sector in Lebanon. As part of the Authority’s plan to liberalize the market and enable competition, the TRA has set several objectives in the reform process:
- Broadband development and dissemination
- The mobile sector liberalization and the launch of the mobile auction destined to privatize the two state-owned mobile network assets and the issuance of two twenty years mobile licenses for the provision of mobile services.
- The licensing, and privatization of the national fixed line operator once corporatized, currently the Ministry of Telecommunications/ Ogero, to be known in the future as Liban Telecom
The TRA has issued a liberalization roadmap summarizing its position and plans to reforming the sector, opening the market to licensing and achieving the full liberalization of the telecommunications in the Republic of Lebanon.
The Liberalization Roadmap is being currently launched for consultation. Interested parties can submit their feedback before 15 May 2008. To view the full document click here
