The “Interconnection Rate” working group led by the House of Representatives’ Commission I, overseeing telecommunications, foreign affairs and defense, has held its first hearing on the hot-button issue of possible interconnection rate cuts.
At its first meeting with the group, the Telecommunications Regulatory Body (BRTI) received several recommendations regarding its plan to go forward with changing the rates.
While the fees itself were not outlined in the initial meeting, the working group led by Commission I deputy chairman Hanafi Rais, concluded that the BRTI must first make sure of the tender and credibility of the interconnection verification team.
“The commission also urges the BRTI to carry out an audit on all telecommunication operators regarding its commitment to the scheme,” he said during the hearing on Monday.
It also called for the BRTI to consult the public before proceeding with such a plan. (ags)
