The Telecommunications Commission (the “Commission”) on 24, January 2020 launched a consultation process to review interconnection rates on domestic voice-related interconnection rate levels in the Turks and Caicos Islands (“TCI”), including the mobile termination rate (“MTR”), fixed termination rate (“FTR”) and transit rates (“TR”). This process constitutes the Commission’s third review of interconnection rates in TCI. The Consultation Documents is available on the Commission’s website at In the associated Consultation Document, the Commission invited interested parties to provide comments on the Proposed Competition Regulations by March 23, 2020 and, as necessary, further reply responses by April 6, 2020.

Whiles no initial responses were received within the deadline of March 23, 2020, Cable & Wireless (TCI) Ltd (“Flow”) asked the Commission for an extension for the filing date for the responses to the Consultation Document to April 30, 2020. To provide parties sufficient time to prepare responses to the matters raised in this consultation process, the Commission has decided to extend the submission filing dates as requested. Specifically, the Commission has revised the Initial Response and Reply Response submission dates as follows:

Initial Responses April 30, 2020

We strongly encourage persons to participate actively in the consultation process as amended by 4pm each date.
