Marshall Islanders should benefit from telecommunications competition

10:26 am on 7 September 2012

The head of the Marshall Islands telecommunications company has called on the government to ensure the opening of the communications sector to competition for the first time is done fairly.

The general manager of the government-owned National Telecommunications Authority, Tommy Kijiner Junior says the board and management supports opening up the telecommunications sector to competition if it will benefit customers.

Mr Kijiner Junior says it has to be done fairly and not just in favor of new entrants to the Marshall Islands market otherwise the Telecommunications Authority will not be able to compete and will not be a viable business.
