Carrier Pre-selection

The Authority has published Carrier Pre-selection draft regulations for public comment. The purpose of the regulations is to promote competition by giving end-users the ability to choose which telecommunications carrier they prefer when making calls.

The draft regulations are made in terms of section 42 of the Electronic Communications Act which in part points out that ICASA must establish a framework in terms of which subscribers to an electronic communications service can access the electronic communications services of another electronic communications service licensee. Further, the electronic communications network service licensees must make the necessary electronic communications facilities available for the implementation and proper functioning of carrier pre-selection.

Interested parties are invited to submit written comments with regard to the proposed regulations to be received by no later than 09 January 2009.
