        failing which this Licence may be revoked in accordance with clause 27 hereof.

        as the rollout period for areas covered in Phase 1 Rationale for the Amendment The proposed amendment is being made
        following Celcom's requests for a twenty four (24) months’ extension of network roll out period from 28th July 2016.

        financing of roll out plans.
