Designation of Universal Service Provider

The Universal Service obligation aims to ensure that basic electronic communications services, which are essential to social and economic inclusion, are available to end users on reasonable request and at an affordable price.

In 2015, the Authority embarked on a public consultation in order to review any possible changes which may affect the Universal Service obligations and designated provider/s. As such, Decision Notice C08/15 was published and designated Gibtelecom as Universal Service Provider for three years, ending September 2018.

Following on from the previous designation, during 2018 the Authority published consultation C02/18 and received comments from two operators. Therefore, this Decision Notice incorporates the Universal Service designated provider and revised Universal Service obligations.
