Telecoms Regulation after the National Broadband Plan Award

Published On:Friday, September 13, 2019


The Communications Commission (the Commission) is of the view that the National Broadband Plan (NBP) will have an impact on competition in the telecommunications market, at the very least in the intervention areas. Therefore in line with its regulatory remit and the National Telecommunications Strategy, the Commission believes it is important to outline its views on regulation after the award of the NBP in the interest of providing regulatory certainty for all potential bidders.


Based on the Commission’s current understanding of the NBP award process, the Commission has created the following living document, Telecoms Regulation after the National Broadband Plan Award; the Commission will update this document as and when there may be developments in relation to the award process and/or its outcomes.
