Cameroon’s telecoms watchdog, Agence de Regulation des Telecommunications (ART), has warned power company AES Sonel that it could face penalties for failing to obtain permission for the installation of fibre-optic infrastructure, Agence Ecofin reports. 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 of between XAF100,000 (USD210,000) and XAF500,000.
