Governments and regulators
Telecoms regulation is about more than protecting consumers; it’s also about creating the right market conditions to encourage investments which facilitate digital engagement. Regulators must deliver these objectives against a backdrop of increasing demands for transparency, greater scrutiny of public sector spend, and an uncertain political climate. Developing policy in this environment requires careful stakeholder management and overcoming significant operating challenges.
At Cenerva, our Partners and Associates have senior experience of working in telecoms regulation. This means we understand the practical constraints of policy-making. Our work ranges from helping governments establish new National Regulatory Authorities and prepare for market liberalisation, through developing plans for regulatory reform, to the detailed design and implementation in areas such as interconnection, switching, and tariffs. Examples include:
Supporting new regulators: developed framework to underpin creation of new telecoms regulatory authority in South Asia.
Market intelligence: delivered detailed European telecommunications market report including key economic and sector metrics and trends.
Digital switchover: advised on regulatory framework to implement digital switchover in West Africa.
Procurement: managed public procurement programme to appoint consultants to establish a new national ICT regulatory authority in the Middle East.
Mobile money: advised on regulatory framework to underpin the roll-out of mobile money in Southern Africa.
