Belarus’ Ministry of Communications and Informatisation (MoCI) is considering whether or not to license a third internet service provider (ISP) to handle an anticipated surge in external internet traffic in the future, according to its head of communications, Pavel Petrulevich.

Petrulevich notes that whilst privately-owned ISPs are allowed to cooperate with the National Peering Center for domestic traffic peering-only, they must purchase external internet traffic capacity from Beltelecom. However, in light of burgeoning demand for data, including mobile internet traffic, that situation may change in future, he said.
