Libya to License Private ISPs

The government of Libya has indicated that it would issue license local private sector companies to offer internet access across the country for the first time.

Afriquejet cites a report from Pyramid Research as saying that several organisations had been awarded concessions to provide local internet access, including IT services company Al Falak, Bayt Al Shams (BsISP) and Tripoli-based Modern World Communications.

State-run Libya Telecom & Technology (LTT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Libya Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology Company (LPTIC), is the country’s only ISP with an international gateway licence, and also acts as a moderator for the internet sector.
