Ethio Telecom, previously Ethiopian Telecommunications Corporation (ETC), is the Ethiopian government owned telecommunications company and major provider of internet and telephone services in Ethiopia.

Originally a division of the Ministry of Post, Telephone and Telegraph, what would become the ETC was established as the Imperial Board of Telecommunications of Ethiopia (IBTE) in 1952. Under the Derg regime, the IBTE was reorganised as the Ethiopian Telecommunications Service in October 1975, which was in turn reorganised in January 1981 as the Ethiopian Telecommunications Authority. In November 1996, the Ethiopian Telecommunications Authority became the ETC and was reorganised at Ethio Telecom on 29 November 2010.

The flag of the Ethiopian Telecommunication Corporation had a light blue flag field with golden fringe on all free edges and the company logo in white in the centre.  The company name above the logo was in Amharic ("የኢትዮጱያ ቴሌኮሙኒኬሸን ኮርፖሬሸን" ="Yä’utəyop̣uya Telekomunikešänə Korəparešänə") and below in English ("Ethiopian Telecommunications Corporation") set in white bold thick-serif capitals.
