LTA lacks equipment to monitor telecoms networks

24 Jan 2014

Liberia Telecommunication Authority (LTA) has revealed that it does not possess the equipment that is needed to actively monitor the quality of the country’s telecoms networks, Cellular News reports. According to the article, the director of the LTA said at a hearing that the lack of the equipment was enabling some companies to under report their traffic and avoid full regulatory payments to the government. Further, the lack of detailed technical supporting documentation that such equipment would provide is hampering any attempts to enforce shut-down notices on companies that are suspected of fraud.
