Tunisia: 'Orange' and 'Tunisiana' No Longer Have to Go Through ATI

Tunis — Private telecommunication operators "Orange" and "Tunisiana" will no longer have to go through the Tunisian Internet Agency (ATI), for their Internet traffic, whether for communications or connections between them or internationally, Minister of Information and Communication Technologies Mongi Marzouk said Friday.

The mention compelling both operators to go through the ATI as Internet exchange point (IXP), under the licence agreement has been removed by an amendment signed by the Tunisian State, represented by the Minister of Information and Communication Technologies and the two private operators "Orange" and "Tunisiana", represented by their CEOs, Didier Charvet and Kenneth Campbell.
