Iraq fines mobile operators

The Iraqi goverment has imposed fines against the country's two largest mobile operators for failure to meet their licence requirements, various sources claimed on Tuesday, citing a report in the Middle East Economic Digest (MEED).

All three players failed to meet quality of service expectations, while Korek Telecom was also rapped for not reaching coverage requirements.

The state slapped a $9 million fine on Zain and a penalty of $300,000 on Asiacell, but Korek Telecom escaped punishment, the reports said.

Zain and AsiaCell are said to be planning an appeal.
