Ministerstwo Administracji i Cyfryzacji | Internet Society (ISOC) in Canada | Scoop.it

Translated by "google"

During the third day of the conference, participants discussed the following key issues:

About the ITR. - We oppose any proposal to extend the scope and objectives of the ITR s. Therefore, we do not agree with any change or that could potentially extend the ITR. In particular, we do not agree on the extension of the definition of telecommunications with information and communication technologies (ICT) - stressed in an interview with PAP President of the Polish delegation - Minister Margaret Olszewski from MAC. All other proposals to extend the ITR will meet with the opposition of the Polish delegation.

The terms and settlement charges. USA, Australia and CEPT (the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications), were against specific legislation in the art. 6 (payment and settlement). You care about this, to take into account the development of the ITR liberalized and competitive telecommunications market. Meanwhile, the African and Arab call for specific provisions relating to settlements between operators. Established an ad hoc group to this issue. Poland actively participates in it.
