Rethinking Regulation in the Digital Era

In October, RIS presented to the West African Telecommunications Regulators Assembly (WATRA) and the Communications Regulators Association of Southern Africa (CRASA) on the role of regulation in the digital era. The purpose of the workshops was to explain three components of regulation in the digital era:

  1. The definition of OTTs and how they should be regulated (download here);
  2. The impact of OTTs on MNO revenues (download here);
  3. How to rethink ICT sector taxation (download here).

In each of the presentations, we explain how regulation is going to have to change in the digital era and that the role of regulators is to stimulate investment in the sector and not to protect outdated business models.
