eircom must keep payphones under USO

6 Jul 2006

Ireland’s telecoms regulator ComReg has published its findings on the future of the country’s universal service obligation (USO) and says that incumbent operator eircom will be required to provide payphone services, which are still seen as valuable, particularly to parts of the immigrant community. The regulator is also imposing obligations on eircom relating to services for people with a disability. These include braille billing and translation of voice messages into text.
