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 2018, 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, public consultation C02/18 was published on 13th June 2018 and this was followed by Decision C03/18 in September 2018 which designated Gibtelecom as Universal Service Provider for one year ending on 30th September 2019.

Following on from the previous designation, on the 15th of July 2019 the Authority published public consultation C01/19 and received comments from two operators. Therefore, this Decision Notice incorporates the designation of a Universal Service Provider and revised Universal Service obligations.
