CRC from Colombia publishes new regulation for bundled telecommunications services

The Communications Regulation Commission (CRC) from Colombia announced that it passed a resolution establishing a new regulatory framework for convergent services that will force operators to offer each service individually under similar conditions as offered in bundled packages.

 

The telecommunications companies will have to specify individual prices for each service as well as any special features in the convergent plan. According to regulator’s figures, over 50% of Colombians are subscribing to triple or quadruple play packages.

 

Telcos will also have to allow current and future customers to compare prices and conditions within their offering and also between companies “through a comparison tool available online on the website of each operator”.
