Libya Telecom & Technology (LTT) (Arabic: ليبيا للاتصالات والتقنية‎) was established in 1997 as a private company by Muhammad Gaddafi. LTT remains a state owned monopoly which continues to dominate the sector. LTT is Libya's most-used service provider, and much of the country's 5.6% (380,000 user) Internet penetration is attributable to its DSL and WiMAX services. Muhammad Gaddafi was the Chairman of LTT and all telecom companies in Libya.

After the Libyan civil war and the subsequent collapse of the Gaddafi regime, LTT is now revamping its network and services. However, internal conflict and rising strain on services means many popular provisions have been plagued by network congestion and poor reception.

In March 2012, Saad Ksheer was appointed CEO of the company, following his previous posts with Microsoft and NCR in the USA and UAE. Saad is also a founding member of Libya ICT a non-governmental organization.
