TRC gives green light to MVNOs

27 Sep 2007

Jordan’s Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) has published Decision No.1-19-2007, opening up the wireless market to mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs). Under the new rules MVNOs will be licensed by the TRC, which will issue the new operators with unique blocks of 100.000 numbers. MVNOs will be subject to the same quality of service regulations and will be required to pay an annual operating fee to the TRC equivalent to 10% of operating revenues net of service tax. Network operators will be required to offer network capacity on a transparent and non-discriminatory basis to the newcomers and will be prohibited from running any win-back campaigns for six months after a customer signs up with an MVNO.
