New Mobile Lines with 50% off on Monthly Package to PwDs


The National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA) has decided providing Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) with new mobile lines, with 50% off on the monthly package, including voice and Internet services, through all the Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) in Egypt.
 
This comes as part of NTRA strategy to support, empower and integrate PwDs in the digital transformation process, and ease their access to telecommunication and Internet services, since PwDs represent an integral part of the Egyptian society.
 
NTRA coordinated with the MNOs to dispense the new mobile lines through their outlets and branches, with the start of Eid Al-Fitr. The paperwork and documents required for receiving the lines were also determined.
 
PwDs will have to visit any MNO branch or outlet to submit their identity documents, through two main methods: either through submitting the Integrated Services Card, which is issued by the Ministry of Social Solidarity, along with the National ID card, or through submitting the Rehabilitation Certificate, the Disabled ID Card and the National ID card, for those who do not have an Integrated Services Card.
 
Furthermore, NTRA directed MNOs to facilitate PwDs access to telecommunication services, including the procedures of receiving the new mobile lines. NTRA also opened the door for companies to create, innovate and encourage competitiveness through initiatives that help serve PwDs, cover their needs, and render decent services to support their inclusion in the society and improve their lives.
