The President of the Nicaraguan Institute of Telecommunications and Mail (Telcor), Orlando Castillo, commented a few days ago, in the 2009 XIII Data Processing International Convention and Fair, which was held in Cuba, that the initiative that entails a new telecommunications law in Nicaragua will be ready soon.
Radio frequencies will be awarded taking into consideration not only economic proposals but also communicational proposals.
Government control over the allocation of concessions and the lack of antitrust rules have set alarm bells ringing for companies in the sector.
A proposal has been made to draft a new telecommunications bill from scratch, completely leaving out the concepts of state control that the current proposal contains.
If approved, the usufruct of radio, television and telephony frequencies would be extended to 25 years.
