(MENAFN) Emirates Telecommunication Corporation, known as Etisalat, said that it is currently exploring green-field business opportunities in several Mideast countries including, Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, Oman, Syria and Morocco, Khaleej Times reported.
The carrier’s Chairman, Mohammad Omran, indicated that there are six possible markets which would involve both the acquisition of green-field licenses within markets with low penetration levels and industry consolidation.

In the coming few months, Etisalat will be introducing new technology which will enable downloads of up to 42mbps, which will grow to 84mbps by end of year.
