Colombia set to merge telecoms and TV regulators
Colombia’s Ministry of Information Technology and Communications (MinTIC) has presented a bill to Congress that will merge the telecoms regulator, the Commission for the Regulation of Communications, CRC) with the National Television Authority (ANTV), into a new, enlarged regulatory body, which will be named the Communications Commission (Comision de Comunicaciones). TeleGeography notes that the move “has been conceived as a way to better equip the watchdog as the pace of convergence within the telecoms and broadcasting sectors gathers pace”. The bill will be debated in the Senate and the House of Representatives.
