Response to Re: PMC rolling out more BTS
The only way this country is going to progress is developing the rural areas and that is introducing some form of moderm telecommunication.
It will have to be majority wireless since its just impossible to run land lines across the whole country. This will be expensive but thats where the goverment should come in, to provide some incentives for rural people who want this service and/or companies who want to provide this services to rural people.
For the latter to happen efficiently the monopoly telikom enjoys has to be removed and thats why i liked the idea of the privatisation policy by Mekere and suported by Bart, since it allowed for this. Plus goverment owned businesses will never money consistently as long as theres influence from politicians... but its an issue on its own.
On the issue of pangtel..as far as i know they're a regulatory body, but they do have the human resource to carryout feasibility studies so as along as the money is provided by an external donor and thet're not looking at making profit, so go ahead. In future include educational instituions which i think are most appropriate body to carry out this studies. Planti blo yupla kam lo CD6 na yupla lus tintin.
