Iranian Minister of Communications and Information Technology Mahmoud Vaezi said a number of foreign companies are keen to operate inside Iran.
He said these countries will receive licenses as virtual operators if they are approved for work in Iran.
Virtual operators are the ones which lack physical apparatus for dispatching voice messages and data. They sign contracts with a company which possesses such facilities and then resell it in retailer market under their own brand name.
Talking to IRNA, the minister said the domestic companies that are interested in this kind of activities should submit their credentials to the ministry to get the needed licenses.
Saying that post-sanctions conditions have paved the way for new ventures, Vaezi said three foreign companies have already started negotiations with Iranian operators the result of which will be announced soon.
