TELE Greenland asks for rescheduling of liberalisation process

14 Apr 2015

TELE Greenland has requested a postponement of the country’s liberalisation process and the publishing of a reference interconnection offer (RIO) for alternative operators willing to offer fixed data services over its networks. The telco disclosed that it was given only a few months to complete the process, and that the ‘design of new products and prices and ensuring that these products work with its existing IT systems is a very long task, which in most other countries has taken several years’. TELE’s acting president Steen Montgomery-Andersen said: ‘We have raised the issue of the timetable and the high costs which the current process inflicts on our customers and society with the government. We thus need an adjustment to the timetable for liberalisation.’

According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, the Greenland Home Rule Government (GHRG) opened the market for fixed data services to competition, under a decision dated 12 September 2014. Following the enactment of the decree, the Consumer and Competition Authority invited interested parties to apply for authorisations for the provision of data services via cable telecoms structure.
