The Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) has published a consultation on “Spectrum Light Licensing”. The purpose of this public consultation is to provide interested parties with an opportunity to submit their views on the introduction of the light licensing regime and its various aspects.
The consultation document outlines CITC’s plans to improve access to more than 13 GHz of spectrum, through light licensing regimes that cater for specific usage categories. The publication also includes an implementation plan for the introduction of the licensing process which commences in early 2022.
The main objective of this ambitious approach is to facilitate using the spectrum on a shared basis among various users and services. This will promote competition and enable innovation, by allowing flexible licensing methods to meet the spectrum needs of the market through pioneering methods of spectrum management.
CITC is inviting all parties, both nationally and internationally, to provide their feedback and comments by 30th September 2021. CITC welcomes submissions from all stakeholders, including users, ICT providers, investors, industrial and public entities.
