  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.
