The purpose of the Draft Regulations are to:

  1. Introduce stricter rules on information to be provided to consumers at the point of contracting and on promotions.
  2. Strengthen parameters to improve the quality of service offered to end-users.
  3. Introduce rules and frameworks for data billing.
  4. Introduce information and billing requirements for subscribers roaming internationally.
  5. Introduce a new penalty regime that includes non-monetary penalties.

Presentations are limited to interested parties who submitted written comments. However, members of the public may participate by being permitted to submit comments and questions.
