A New Telecommunications Law Has Been Drafted and the Government Is in the Process of Establishing an Independent Regulatory Authority

Libya’s incumbent telco soliciting foreign help for network growth

In recent years the government-owned telco LPTIC has been instrumental in rebuilding Libya’s telecom infrastructure, much of which had been destroyed during the civil war and the subsequent fighting between the main opposing factions. The company has developed a working relationship with US companies for the first time in many years. Its subsidiary Hatif Libya in mid-2021 contracted the US-firm Infinera to provide an optical transport network to unserved areas of the country, and to improve service quality to existing customers.

In itself, this shows a positive response to calls from LPTIC for governments and the private sector to invest in the country’s telecom infrastructure.

LPTIC and government ministers have also solicited financial, technical, and regulator assistance from a range of countries, including the US, the UK, Italy, Algeria, and Egypt. Other services and cooperation have been offered in relation to developing digital infrastructure and skills, digital transformation, and the development of a legal framework for the ICT and telecom sectors.
