Part 5 of the Telecommunications and Radiocommunications Regulation Act of 2009 (the Act) states the legal obligations of telecommunications service providers in the market competition and the clear prohibition of not engaging in anti-competitive behaviours.
Telecommunications Radiocommunications and Broadcasting Regulator (TRBR), as the regulatory body, wishes to address that specific part and to ensure that telecommunications service providers have a clear picture of the intention of the Act.
Service providers which have been designated by TRBR as dominant in the market industry in a particular sector of the market are the most targeted ones because TRBR has to ensure that all service providers have a fair share in the market competition.
This does not mean that Telecommunications Radiocommunications and Broadcasting Regulator (TRBR) will be involved commercially or in the market competition as such. It means that if a service provider believes and has proof that a dominant service provider is conducting commercial activities deemed to be anti-competitive, then the service provider should refer the matter to TRBR for consideration.
The Guideline has the purpose to help avoiding such complaints to be made regularly by educating and helping service providers.
