No regulations for VoIP

26 Aug 2005

Brazilian telecoms regulator Anatel has said that it does not plan to regulate the use of voice over IP (VoIP) telephony services, as it considers it to be a technology rather than a service that is covered by a licence for fixed line services or multimedia communications services. Anatel said it is aware that VoIP will have a significant impact on the telecoms sector, admitting that it will need to watch the competition format of the fixed line market in the future.
