International infrastructure

Submarine Cable networks

International telecommunications links, like the domestic routes, were linked via multiple transmission systems. Submarine cables extended from Tripoli to Marseille, France, and Catania, Italy, provided telephone and telegraph circuits between Libya and West Europe. A satellite ground-station complex located near Tripoli operated through the Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean satellites of the International Telecommunications Satellite (INTELSAT) organization. Additionally, Libya was a member of the regional Arab Satellite (ARABSAT) organization. There is also microwave radio relay to Tunisia and Egypt and troposphoric scatter to Greece.

Under the April 2001 agreement between the African Regional Organization for Satellite Communications (Rascom), GPTC and Alcatel Espace, Libya is helping to fund Rascom's first satellite under a Mauritius registered company, Rascomstar. Other owners include 41 African telecommunication companies with equity of US$ 41 million. The will provide Africa with telephone services, internet access as well as radio and television broadcasts. In addition, the project will provide various telecommunication services to isolated African villages and rural areas currently lacking services, Finally, Af Sat will also provide direct communications between all parts of Africa instead of depending on highly expensive Western links.

In 1998, the GPTC awarded a contract to Alcatel to supply and install Libya's first fiber optic submarine telecommunications system. Known as the Libyan Fiber Optic Network (LFON), the cable stretches over 1660 km in eleven separate links along Libya's coastlines. Completed in 1999, the LFON operates using Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) over two fiber pairs, which carry voice, data and videos traffic.

United Nations Development Program (UNDP)

The General post Company has signed a number of agreements with UNDP for telecommunications development. The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), in conjunction with the local counterparts, has carried out the projects. These have included:

Formulation of a comprehensive telecommunication plan 1995-2020:

A project carried out between 1993 and 1995, planning for future telecommunication needs, including new technology, improved and increased phone lines.

Training in telecommunications:

A project implemented between 1997 and 1999, building on the results of the 1995-2020 planning project, which used local and foreign experts to provide training to more than 1,000 employees covering skills improvements and the use of new technology, and finally providing equipments for training centers.

A consultative and maintenance planning study:

This project identified network maintenance needs, and put in place the necessary programs for maintenance improvement; completed.

In 1999 the Libyan General Post Company for Postal and Telecommunications Services began a project with UNDP and Universal Postal Union (UPU) for the improvement of the national postal service.

General Post and Telecommunications Company (GPTC)

The General Post and Telecommunications Company is the national operator and regulator for all telecommunications services in the country, see table below. As a government organization, the GPTC has no administrative and financial autonomy. The separation of postal and telecommunications functions has not yet been carried out. To date, there is no known government policy for the liberalization and privatization of the telecommunications sector.

Mobile Network Systems

The country's first and only GSM-900 cellular mobile telephone network went live in November 1996 but since then, annual growth has not kept pace with many other African nations. By end 2001 penetration of mobile phones was still less than 1%.

The GSM-900 cellular network was launched with network services offered by Al Madar. Telecom Co. (Orbit Telecom), a subsidiary of GPTC, under an unlimited license covering the coastal zone.

A new mobile phone network has launched its 60,000 mobile lines, bringing competition to the sector for the first time. However, since the new company, Libyana, is state owned like its rival, some critics questions whether the competition will be genuine. Although the prices have already fallen, this remains much higher than in neighboring countries.

In September 2004 the state-run post and Telecommunication Company signed a 200 million euro ($244 million) mobile phone network agreement with Finland's Nokia and French Telecom equipment producer Alcatel. The deal involved the creation of new mobile phone network with a capacity of 2.5 million phone lines.

During his speech at this occasion, Eng. Mohammed Muammer al-Gaddafi, Secretary of the General People's Committee for Posts and Telecommunications, said mobile services would be available even to the most remote villages in Libya.

Linking Libya through optical and fiber glass and cables with Europe will turn Libya in an important link in the communications between Europe on one hand and East, Central and West Africa on the other.

Internet services

Internet services are reasonably reliable, relatively cheap, and widely available.
