The new act replaces the conventional Type I and Type II telecoms licence categories (ie, facility-based and service-based operators, respectively) which were adopted in 1996 with a more liberal approach. Therefore, telecoms service providers will no longer be regulated unless their services involve:
– the negotiation of interconnection among telecoms service providers;
– the assignment of specific radio spectrums;
- – the assignment of public telecoms network IDs and point codes; or
- – the assignment of telecoms numbers to fixed and mobile-service providers.
- – integrated telecoms networks;
- – local telecoms networks;
- – fixed-satellite communications;
- – mobile-satellite communications;
- – mobile broadband; and
- – special Type II business which has been assigned user numbers by the NCC.
General Type II operators are advised that there is no need to file registration with the NCC unless they wish to have the NCC involved in their interconnection negotiation with other registered telecoms service providers.
