The Ghana Internet Services Providers Association (GISPA), the Ghana Telecommunications Chamber and the Wireless Application Services Providers of Ghana (WASPAG), have petitioned parliament over the National Communications Authority (NCA)’s move to implement the interconnect clearing house next year.
The interconnect clearing house is expected to provide a common, independent mechanism for the billing and settlement of interconnect traffic for all the existing and future telecom operators in the country.
But the Ghana Internet Services Providers Association , the Telecom Chamber as well as the Wireless Application Services Providers of Ghana say the new system when implemented would be an additional cost to Telcos and Services providers which would be passed on to consumers.
Citi Business News checks in parliament have revealed that the Parliamentary Select Committee on Communications will meet the three groups this Saturday 13th December,2014 over their concerns on the establishment of an interconnect clearing house in Ghana.
