Exclusive: Ethiopia to reopen bidding for second telecoms licence, officials say

ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) – Ethiopia will open bidding for its second telecoms operator licence this month, two senior government officials said on Monday, including the right to operate mobile financial services.

The Horn-of-Africa nation sold only one of two full-service licences on offer in May, citing a lower than expected price for the second one, which it now wants to offer again.
