(Corrects net profit figure after company re-submitted early
CAIRO Aug 13 Telecom Egypt, the
country's fixed-line monopoly, posted 994 million Egyptian
pounds in net profit in the second quarter, up 11 percent from
895.6 million pounds in the same period a year earlier.
It gave no reason for the increase. Telecom Egypt is waiting
for the government to approve a unified licence for mobile and
landline services that would allow the company to offer mobile
services and significantly boost its earnings.
