  About NTRA.  

The National Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (NTRA) was established in accordance with the provision of Law No. 10, for the year 2003 'the Telecommunications Regulation Law' as a national authority to administer the telecommunication sector, considering transparency, open competition, universal service and protection of user rights as a general outline for NTRA scope of work.

The ideal commanding the activities of NTRA is to become an active pace maker within the telecom sector, building the capacity and the reputation, which allows it to be an independent and prudent arbiter among the different stakeholders in the sector; the industry, the state and the consumer.

It is within this equilateral triangle of Industry, State and Consumer, set inside a regional arena, and embedded in a broader context of rapid global changes, that the playing field upon which NTRA is set to score and excel truly exists.

NTRA aims to develop and distribute the services in a manner that copes with the most recent technology available to the Egyptians.

NTRA has special funds to support research and development in the field of communications. NTRA supervises and monitors the expenditure of these funds for the development and the research of the most recent trends related to wireless communications.

The management board of NTRA determines means of expenditure of these funds that aligns with his activities carried out by them or assigned to others. In this framework NTRA funds this project entitled,"Novel Planar Antennas for the Most Recent Telecommunications Applications."
