Telecom Egypt, the first integrated operator of communications and information technology services in Egypt, signed an agreement with the American company LUMEN to establish the first regional fulcrum for LUMEN in Egypt to provide Internet services to telecom companies in Egypt, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

They discussed areas of joint cooperation between the two companies in the Arab region, Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
