Maroc Telecom, also known by its Arabic acronym IAM (Ittisalat Al Maghrib), is the principal telecommunications operator in Morocco. The company's genesis can be traced back to 1891 with the establishment of the first Moroccan postal service by Sultan Hassan I. However, it wasn't until 1998 that Maroc Telecom was officially founded following a decree related to the state monopoly of Telegraphy and Telephony. The name "Maroc Telecom" was adopted later for better international recognizability. The company underwent privatisation in the early 2000s with French mass media company Vivendi purchasing shares. Initially, Vivendi bought 35% of Maroc Telecom's shares in 2001, followed by an additional 16% in 2005, raising its participation to 51%. Further transactions in 2007 resulted in Vivendi owning 53% of the company. In 2013, Vivendi sold its majority stake in Maroc Telecom to Etisalat. Today, Maroc Telecom remains a key player in Morocco's telecommunications industry.
