NCA denies telecom tariffs to go up



The National Communications Authority (NCA) has said that media reports that suggest that the authority will increase telecom tariffs next year do not reflect the real issue.

‘The facts of the issue as reported in the press are not reflective of the on-going process by the Authority in reviewing Wholesale Interconnection Rates for the mobile network operators,’ said NCA.

The Wholesale Interconnection Rate is the charge which one telecommunications operator charges the other for terminating calls on its network.

According to NCA at the public forum on the Clearing House Licence (CHL) held on 26th November, 2014, the NCA shed light on the impact that the Interconnect Clearing House to be introduced in May, 2015 would have on the Wholesale Interconnection Rates.

The Authority also explained how the operations of the Clearing House will mitigate the rising trends of the Wholesale Interconnection Rates going forward.

But the authority has assure the general public that they are aware of the impact and benefits of telecommunication services and that the authority remains committed to ensuring that the expectations of all stakeholders within the industry are met.
