Caribbean states to update telecoms legislation
The five member states of the Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority (ECTEL) are updating their telecoms framework with legislation, reports the St Kitts & Nevis Observer. A new electronic communications bill is expected to come before the parliaments of the member states.
“We have come to a point where through the dynamism of the telecoms industry and the advancements that have been made in technology, the existing act can no longer work for us,” said Quincy Prentice, director of ECTEL’s board. ECTEL was established in 2000, and comprises a council of ministers, a regional directorate and a national telecommunications regulatory commission (NTRC) in each member state. http://bit.ly/2wXdvqv
