This IDC Market Note presents IDC's opinion of the recent datacenter and cloud regulation approved by Egypt's National Telecom Regulatory Authority (NTRA).
"The NTRA regulation increases transparency and clarifies requirements for offering datacenter and cloud services in Egypt. As such, it will be essential for attracting further local and foreign direct investment in the cloud computing space in the country. Given that hyperscalers are shaping global connectivity infrastructure and increasing their interest in emerging markets, the new regulatory framework is expected to improve Egypt's position as an international connectivity hub." — Senior Research Manager Tolga Yalcin, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
