LIVE CONSULTATIONS:

Future of Local Television Broadcasting

This is the ICTA’s Call for Inputs paper on The Future of Local Television Broadcasting in the Cayman Islands. There is an obligation on specific ICTA Licensees to provide a Local Television service where they also provide a subscription television service. It is now nearly ten years since that Local Television obligation was first drafted and much has changed in the Cayman Islands since then. As set out in the paper, the Authority is considering whether that Local Television service obligation is still fit for purpose and asks for your inputs by 7 May 2014. It is intended that the outcome of this process will be for the Authority to make recommendations, where appropriate, to the Government on possible amendments to current Licences and/or the introduction of Regulations dealing with the issues raised.

Unbundling the Local Loop

In this public consultation document, the Information and Communications Technology Authority (the "ICTA" or "Authority") seeks comment from all interested parties on whether or not mandating the provision of access to a Licensee’s fixed wire and/or fibre Local Loop in Grand Cayman and/or the Sister Islands would be contrary to the public interest and related questions.

A Policy for Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) and Similar Technologies

The use of DPI and similar technologies in other jurisdictions such as the European Union, Canada and the United States has raised concerns about privacy and, quite separately, traffic tiering. These concerns have resulted in a number of regulatory investigations and determinations. In this public consultation document, the Information and Communications Technology Authority seeks input from the industry and the public on the policy that should be adopted with respect to the use such technologies in the Cayman Islands.

Publication of ICT Statistics

The Authority often receives inquires regarding the extent of usage of ICT services in the Cayman Islands. Those inquires come from, among others, research companies conducting market studies, potential entrants in the market, and international agencies conducting country comparisons. The Authority considers that the public disclosure of certain highly aggregated market statistics could be in the public interest. For example, public disclosure could:

Local Number Portability - Second Consultation

In ICT Decision 2005-1, Interim Decision and Further Process for Local Number Portability, released 29 March 2005, the Authority determined that there were significant benefits to LNP and that it would be appropriate to further examine the likely implementation costs of LNP in the Cayman Islands. Accordingly, the Authority established a Local Number Portability Consortium (LNPC), consisting of the Authority and major ICT network licensees, to identify the most appropriate LNP model for the Cayman Islands and to investigate its costs.

Initially, the LNPC examined the models in place in a wide variety of jurisdictions around the globe. The LNPC then approached a number of vendors and requested proposals for the implementation of LNP in Cayman. Based on these discussions, the LNPC recommended to the Authority a model involving an electronic query of all calls. In this consultation document, the Authority seeks comments on whether LNP remains a desirable option for the Cayman Islands in light of the likely costs to subscribers.

FLLRIC (Phase II) - Costing Manual

In this public consultation document, the Authority seeks comment from all interested parties on a costing manual that will be used by Cable and Wireless (Cayman Islands) Ltd. ("C&W") to develop Forward-looking Long-run Incremental Costs ("FLLRIC") for its services. Among other things, the FLLRIC costing manual and associated model will be used to develop rates for interconnection services with other telecommunications service providers, to ensure that C&W's retail rates are not anti-competitive, and to quantify any access deficit.

This public consultation is a continuation of the FLLRIC development process. The first phase of that process was initiated by a public consultation on 24 May 2004 entitled Forward-looking Long-run Incremental Costing (CD (2004) 1) and concluded by an Authority decision on 22 July 2005 entitled ICT Decision 2005-4 - Decision for the Forward-looking Long-run Incremental Costing Consultation (CD (2004) 1).

Policy for Unsolicited Electronic Messages (Spam)

Spam is the term now generally used to refer to unsolicited bulk messages, usually transmitted to a large number of recipients via electronic mediums such as email. They usually have a focus on promoting products, services or fraudulent schemes. Major problems caused by spam are breaches of privacy and a lowering of user confidence, deceptive practices, illegal or offensive content such as pornography and scams, threats to network integrity and security, desired email getting blocked by anti-spam technologies, and the financial costs imposed on ISPs and users. Due to the problems caused by spam and the continuing growth in the volume of spam, a number of governments around the world have enacted or are proposing legislation as one way of curbing spam growth. The ICT Authority considers that legislation against spam may be an appropriate measure for the Cayman Islands also. This paper seeks to discuss and obtain feedback on the various policy issues which are raised when considering anti-spam legislation. The objective is to ensure that any anti-spam legislation enacted in Cayman Islands is an effective tool as part of a multi-pronged attack on spam.

Technician Certification Programme

Until the liberalization of the telecommunications market in Cayman, the incumbent Cable & Wireless certified both its own employees and contracted technicians who undertook internal cabling and installation of telephone networks. This programme is no longer appropriate in a liberalized telecommunications market. However, the Authority believes there is still a requirement to provide a technician certification programme that is independent of any particular provider.

Accordingly, the Authority proposes to establish a regime of training and certification, in collaboration with the University College of the Cayman Islands that meets international industry standards, and promotes the development of safe and reliable ICT networks and services in the Cayman Islands.

The ICT Authority has initiated a Public Consultation Process to obtain the views of the general public and the ICT sector on how the Technician Certification Programme should be structured.

Locking of Mobile Handsets

Many mobile handsets allow the mobile service provider to prevent the handset from being used to access an alternative mobile service provider's network. This practice is generally referred to as "locking" the handset. The mobile service providers in the Cayman Islands apply this practice to some or all of the handsets they supply.

The locking of any handsets by any service provider may inhibit competition as it is an impediment to customers changing service providers. On the other hand, it may be argued that handset prices would rise if unlocking were to be mandated because of reduced incentives for service providers to provide handset subsidies. In this public consultation, the Authority seeks comments from all interested parties on an appropriate policy regarding the locking of mobile handsets.

Draft Process Directive

There is no uniform practice for the manner in which pertinent information is made available amongst Licensees. The Authority is minded to issue Procedural Rules in order to have a more transparent, efficient and uniform regulatory process. The Authority requests that all Major Network Licensees file their comments on the attached draft Procedural Rules no later than 15 December 2004. In the interim the Authority encourages the Licensees to follow the draft Procedural Rules.

Local Number Portability (LNP)

Through this consultative document, the ICT Authority seeks comments from Licensees, other stakeholders and the general public on local number portability (LNP) which, many parties contend, helps to promote competition and maximize the benefits of a competitive telecommunications market for consumers. For example, if a customer can keep his telephone number when changing operators, he avoids a number of costs associated with a number change. With lower costs to the customer of changing operators, there is more potential for the development of competition and market entry.

Promotions - Regulatory Guidelines

In this public consultation document the Authority seeks comment from all interested parties on a particular set of guidelines that are to be employed to evaluate the legitimacy of retail service promotions.

In the Authority's view there currently exists little regulatory guidance with respect to service promotions. While Annex 5 to Cable & Wireless' ("C&W") Licence ("Annex 5") addresses the tariff treatment of C&W's retail and wholesale services, it does not explicitly address the tariff treatment of C&W's retail service promotions. To-date, the Authority has evaluated the legitimacy of Cable & Wireless (C&W) promotions on a case-by-case basis. Hence, the purpose of the guidelines in this public consultation is to reduce regulatory uncertainty by providing Licensees an understanding of how the Authority will evaluate and determine the legitimacy of service promotions.

Forward Looking Long-Run Incremental Costing (FLLRIC)

This public consultation document commences ICTA's proceeding on the development and application of a forward-looking long-run incremental cost (FLLRIC) model. The Authority anticipates this document will be the first of several in this proceeding that seeks comment and clarification from interested parties.

The purpose of constructing a FLLRIC model is threefold: the FLLRIC model will be used to establish cost-based interconnection rates, provide cost inputs for imputation tests, and quantify any access deficit. The initial purposes of the FLLRIC model are set out in C&W's Licence, of which the relevant portions are discussed in greater detail in the following section. FLLRIC may be used for other purposes than those identified in the C&W Licence; and these likely will become evident as the liberalisation process evolves and competition develops.

In this document, the Authority sets out the overall process for the FLLRIC proceeding which is comprised of three phases. In the first phase, the Authority seeks to establish the foundation of a FLLRIC model; that is, to identify generally accepted economic and "best practice" regulatory costing principles to be adopted by Cable & Wireless (Cayman Islands) ("C&W") in a FLLRIC model. In Phase 2, the Authority will evaluate a preliminary implementation of the FLLRIC model based on the initial Phase 1 determinations. Finally, in Phase 3, C&W will be directed to implement the FLLRIC model consistent with the Authority's Phase 2 determinations.

Wholesale and Carrier Services

The Authority is of the view that the Liberalisation Agreement and Cable & Wireless Licence make reference to only three classes of services: retail, interconnection and wholesale (for resale). There are clearly a number of services which fall outside the definitions of these three categories. Such services are primarily those provided to other licensees, not for resale but rather as a component of their own services. For want of a better name, the Authority proposes to refer to these services as "Carrier Services", and to define the term by exception, i.e. "Carrier Services" means services, other than retail services and interconnection and wholesale (for resale) services provided by one licensee to another.

The Authority believes that it has the jurisdiction and good grounds to require the incumbent to provide wholesale and carrier services to other licensees, and for such services to be subject to regulation.

Indirect Access

This consultation document seeks public input on the subject of indirect access. A well-structured regulatory framework for indirect access can further the development of effective competition for international ICT services in the Cayman Islands' liberalised ICT market. Indirect access allows international ICT service providers to sell outgoing international services in competition with the incumbent. Indirect access will effectively untie the provision of international services from the provision of access and local services and, as a result, facilitate competition for the former.

The Authority is of the view that interconnection services should be provided for in a manner which facilitates market liberalization, maximizes the use of infrastructure and minimizes environmental impacts. Further, consistent with the ICTA Law, interconnection services must be provided on non-discriminatory terms and conditions, be sufficiently unbundled so that only required network elements are being paid for, and be made available on a cost basis pursuant to a methodology adopted by the Authority. Public comment on the Draft Regulations is sought.

Draft Dispute Resolution Rules

It is recognized that important issues affecting Licensees and interested parties will require debate amongst these various parties which may result in disputes. It is also recognized that some disputes will require some form of intervention for resolution by the Information and Communications Technology Authority. Additionally, it is anticipated that members of the general public will have concerns on matters pertaining to the ICT Services they receive which may require some form of intervention for resolution by the Authority. In order to ensure a fair, efficient and equitable process for addressing and resolving such matters the Authority proposes to introduce Dispute Resolution Rules. Public comment on the Draft Rules is sought.
