Skycloud Networks requests cancellation of licence

25 Nov 2014

Vanuatu-based telecoms operator Skycloud Networks has requested that the Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulator (TRR) revoke its operating concession, which was issued on 23 October 2013. The regulator disclosed that ‘the request was submitted with grounds justifying it’, and following a consideration of all of the relevant factors, the TRR issued an order to cancel the licence, effective 21 November 2014.

The regulator has pointed out that, following the decision, a total of seven operators hold authorisations for the provision of telecoms services in the country, namely: Telecom Vanuatu Limited (TVL), Digicel Vanuatu, Wantok Networks, Incite Technology at Work, Interchange Limited, Telsat Broadband and Spim Limited. TVL and Digicel are the only operators authorised to provide mobile and fixed telephony services, while the remainder of the companies are internet service providers (ISPs).
