The Eastern Caribbean Telecommunications Authority or ECTEL was established in 2000 by the governments of five Eastern Caribbean states – Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The Authority is tasked with promoting competition on the telecommunications market of the five countries, thus creating a fully liberalised electronic communications market.
At the regional consultation taking place in St Lucia on 11 and 12 April the draft of the new Electronic Communications Bill will be discussed. The proposed legislation applies competition law rules to the telecoms sector in an attempt to make the services offered by telecoms providers in ECTEL member states more efficient and affordable.
