Private carriers welcome-ZICTA
Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority -ZICTA- says the decision to invite a private carrier for digital television signals is part of encouraging competition in the broadcasting sector.
ZICTA Type Approval Engineer Elliot Kabalo says this will also give an opportunity for other players in the sector.
Mr Kabalo also says ZICTA as a stakeholder will also regulate the performance of the signal providers, while the Independent Broadcasting Authority -IBA -will regulate content.
Mr Kabalo was speaking on Monday when he featured on Tv2′s Morning Live News and Current Affairs Segment.
He also stated that ZICTA will soon issue a tender inviting a private carrier for digital television signals, which will be open to anyone that is able to provide the service.
