Kudos to North Rock for sending out the notice below of a discussion on proposed changes to our telecom regulations. I very much would have liked to be able to attend this event, however unfortunately this is one circumstance where I regret having a requirement to attend Regiment as it conflicts with the timing of this meeting.
Considering that it is the Ministry of Environment Telecommunications and E-commerce (what environment has in common with telecommunications entirely escapes me, but thats a different discussion), it would be nice if they created an online discussion forum including summaries of what was discussed at this meeting for those of us who are unable to attend.
Somehow I doubt it, but I’d love to be proven wrong.
Dear Valued Customer;
North Rock Communications invites you to attend the Town Hall Meeting being held by the Ministry of Environment Telecommunications and E-Commerce (METEC) this Thursday, February 8 2007 at the Cathedral Hall from 5:30 to 7:30.
The purpose of this event is to allow the Ministry to present and explain the recently announced proposed changes to Bermuda’s telecommunications regulations to the public and to allow you to ask questions of a panel, and express your views.
North Rock has put together a document outlining our views that can be accessed from www.northrock.bm/pdf/Reform.pdf
To view the complete METEC recommendations visit the Telecommunications Notices section of the www.gov.bm portal.
There has been much discussion in the media on the negative impact that these changes will likely have throughout the Telecommunications Industry. We encourage you to attend the Meeting so that you have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the proposed changes and express your views.
