PUC invites interconnection comments

29 Jun 2006

The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) of the Bahamas has invited comments on a proposed set of guidelines designed to govern interconnection. The rules have been designed to give guidance to the Bahamas Telephone Company (BTC) in preparing its reference interconnection offer (RIO), with the aim of speeding up the process and at the same time lowering costs for alternative providers. The absence of interconnection legislation has led to a number of complaints against BTC in recent years, with telcos such as Indigo claiming that the incumbent has frustrated the development of competition by refusing to forge wholesale agreements. Comments from the public will be accepted by the regulator until the end of July.
