The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry (AITI) of Brunei has launched a consultation on the development of its ‘Tariff Regulation Framework for the Telecommunications and Broadcasting Sectors in Brunei Darussalam’ programme. Stakeholders can provide feedback on the paper before 11 October. Previously, on 24 April this year, the AITI appointed Detecon Asia Pacific (Detecon) to oversee the initiative. Phase one of the project has just concluded, with the main objective of information gathering ahead of an in-depth industry analysis.
In unrelated news, the AITI has confirmed that it has signed an agreement with Alif Technologies for the design, deployment, and maintenance of a registry-registrar domain name system. The project is expected to be completed in March 2014, when AITI’s subsidiary Brunei Network Information Centre (BNNIC) will become the .bn domain name registrar. Previously, in April 2012 the AITI awarded the consultancy to develop the Domain Name Management Framework of .bn to IDA International (IDA-I) and Singapore Network Information Centre (SGNIC).
