Tunisia rules on quality of service for mobiles

Tunisia’s National Telecommunications Authority has issued a ruling setting quality of service (QoS) requirements for the nation’s wireless providers, noted Telegeography. “Decision Coll/Reg/2017/12 also determines protocols for taking measurements for QoS indicators, and requires operators to publish coverage maps for their 3G and 4G service areas, which will be confirmed independently by the watchdog.” The decision sets out requirements for operators on network coverage, 2G and 3G voice services and 3G/4G mobile data services, as well as providing clear definitions for each indicator. Notably, it sets commitments for 3G and 4G data speeds, requiring providers to offer minimum average download speeds of 4 Mbps by 29 March 2019, 7 Mbps between 29 March 2019 and 29 March 2021, and 10 Mbps thereafter for 3G networks, while average 4G speeds must reach 10 Mbps, 20 Mbps and 30 Mbps within the same timeframe.
