ART warns against unauthorised rollout of fibre-optics

4 Jun 2013

Cameroon’s telecoms watchdog, Agence de Regulation des Telecommunications (ART), has warned power company AES Sonel and internet service provider (ISP) Creolink for failing to obtain permission from the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications for the installation of fibre-optic networks. Agence Ecofin cites a statement from ART as saying that under Law No. 2010/013 of 21 December 2010, ‘Regulating Electronic Communications in Cameroon,’ the unauthorised installation of fibre-optic public communications networks is illegal and could result in administrative and financial penalties.
