The new Regulations address issues such as access to cable landing stations, consumer protection, retail pricing, wholesale access and guidelines on market access and assessment of significant market power. The roadshow, will provide opportunities for the ECTEL Team to further detail the main provisions of the Bill and accompanying regulations and for the regulator to understand the key elements and concerns from stakeholders and service providers.
