PTA consults on guidance for local fibre rollouts

18 Aug 2014

Icelandic telecoms regulator, the Post and Telecom Administration (PTA), has launched a public consultation on the proposed technical architecture of local fibre-optic networks. The regulator pointed out that the Ministry of Interior requested in March 2014 that the agency prepares guidelines for local authorities and other public bodies for the design, construction and operation of local fibre networks. As such, the PTA has revealed that it has already begun work on the document, and notes that its final report will be published in mid-September 2014. The watchdog has invited all interested parties to submit their comments on the published draft recommendations by 28 August 2014.
