Following the rejection of its initial bid by the Ministry of Information and Communication Technologies (MinCom), Tunisiana has been awarded licences for fixed line and 3G mobile operations. The Qatar Telecom (Qtel) subsidiary will pay TND205 million (USD131.52 million) for the concessions, TND44 million higher than its earlier bid. As previously noted by CommsUpdate, Tunisiana has enlisted Chinese vendor Huawei for the rollout of its 3G network infrastructure.
