Nicaragua to replace 1995 telecoms law

17 Jan 2018

The Nicaraguan Institute for Telecommunications and Posts (Instituto Nicaraguense de Telecomunicaciones y Correos, Telcor) is committed to overhauling the outdated 1995 General Law of Telecommunications and Postal Services (Law No. 200) this year, La Prensa reports. The reform will be bankrolled by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), and a consultant is expected to be hired in April to oversee the process. Going forward, the watchdog is also seeking assistance in formulating new mobile tariffs; Nicaraguan mobile prices are currently among the highest in Central America.
