Telecom Authority of #Trinidad and #Tobago posts draft policy for (and proposed amendments to) the Telecommunications Act

On May 6, 2013, the Ministry of Science and Technology of Trinidad and Tobago via the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT ; http://www.tatt.org.tt) have posted two documents for public comment. They are:

The submission of comments must be made on or before Monday 3rd June 2013 (update June 28 2013) extended to July 9 2013.

(Update : June 28, 2013 : TTCS Draft Comments posted)

 

 

 

Proposed Policy to amend the Telecommunications Act of Trinidad and Tobago

According to the Proposed Policy to amend the Telecommunications Act,

The Policy is intended to amend the framework developed for the administration and regulation of the telecommunications and broadcasting sectors as set out in the Telecommunications Act.

The Policy is thus intended to amend market regulatory rules to provide for the continued orderly development of the telecommunications and broadcasting
sector after the liberalisation process begun in earnest in 2005. The policy therefore provides for the strengthening of the Authority’s powers in certain instances to
mitigate against activity which may have a prejudicial impact on the sector and the wider economy.

The policy also seeks to provide for appropriate competition regulation in the telecommunications and broadcasting sectors which will effectively close the
regulatory gaps created by the passage of the Fair Trading Act Chap. 81:13. Section 3(g) of the said Act specifically excludes from its ambit, those companies
which fall under the purview of the Telecommunications Act.

The Proposed Policy to amend the Telecommunications further describes

  • the policy objectives,
  • an overview of recent developments in the telecom sector,
  • six key policy policy principles which the proposed act should adhere to, and
  • a summary of the proposed amendments to the Telecommunications Act

History of Bulletin Board Systems (BBSes) in Trinidad and Tobago

This is a historical record of the Bulletin Board Systems (BBSes) which were in operation in Trinidad and Tobago between 1986 and 2000.

A BBS was a computer system that allowed users to connect to the system (typically via dial up modems). Users logged in could chat, email, download files, post messages in forums for other users to read and respond to. BBSes were a precursor to what many persons do on the Internet today, social networking, downloading files, chat, reading and posting in forums or on email lists.

Bulletin Board Systems (BBSs) in Trinidad and Tobago were a popular means of communications beginning in the late 1980s even though personal computers were expensive and few persons actually had one at home. That scenario began to change by the early 1990s as prices on computer hardware began to decrease and modem speeds increased.
