The National Information and Communications Technology Authority (NICTA) commenced a public inquiry on 21 November 2017 into whether or not particular mobile telecommunications services supplied by Digicel (PNG) Limited should be subject to a retail service determination and whether NICTA should recommend that the Minister make such a determination under the National Information and Communications Technology Act 2009 (the Act). Two rounds of consultation have occurred to date and NICTA has carefully considered the views included in submissions from respondents.

NICTA has now modified the retail service determination that it is considering recommending to the Minister. It is appropriate for stakeholders and interested members of the public to have an opportunity to comment on the current version of the proposed draft determination before it is finalised, and submissions are hereby invited on the draft proposal which will be available on NICTA’s website (www.nicta.gov.pg) from Monday 18 June 2018.

All written submissions should be submitted by email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by the close of business on Friday 29 June 2018. Copies of the submissions received will be published on NICTA’s Public register consistent with the requirements under subsection 229(3) of the Act. Any respondent who wishes to claim confidentiality in relation to information that it submits should follow the procedures set out in the current guidelines on submissions of written comments to public consultations and public inquiries, which are also available from NICTA’s Public Register at www.nicta.gov.pg .

For further enquiries contact Mr Kila Gulo-Vui, Director, Economics, Consumer and international Affairs on telephone 3033227 during business hours or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
