Regulator to update Dominican Republic telecoms law

14 Dec 2015

The Dominican Republic’s telecoms regulator Indotel has said it is working on an update of the country’s main telecoms legislation, General Telecommunications Law No. 153-98, which was enacted in May 1998. A report from Telesemana says that the regulator wants the law adapted to reflect the latest developments in the ICT sector. The executive director of Indotel, Leonardo Alberty Canela, also said that the body will be working with operators to lower the cost of internet access in the country, while promoting the extension of telecoms infrastructure to more rural areas and the construction of a national fibre backbone.
