[The Chosun Ilbo, May 21 2008] Egyptian Firm Launching Mobile Network in N.Korea

An Egyptian telecom operator has announced a successful first test of its mobile phone network in North Korea.

It's a first step to providing mobile service coverage throughout the communist country as Orascom Telecom prepares to make mobile service available to North Koreans within the second half of this year.

Earlier this year the Cairo-based operator became the first foreign company to acquire a North Korean license to provide mobile service.
