Citc New Rule on Fair Usage Policy

Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) adopted decisions on absolute transparency in packages, offers and regulating the fair-use policy.

The new regulation provides for the abolition of all current fair-use policy practices on unlimited Internet packages applied by service providers to users. This is due to the lack of commitment by service providers to full transparency.
The regulation obligates service providers to lift all restrictions and to cancel the fair-use policy for all packages with unlimited Internet access within a maximum of 48 hours.

If the supplier wishes to apply the fair-use policy to current or future packages, the CITC will allow all service providers a maximum of 30 days to clarify their policies to all users with complete transparency.
The new regulation also stipulates that if a fair-use policy is applied to any current or future offer or package, the minimum fair-use obligation should be met.

As per new regulation in the case of the application of the fair use policy:


• Internet packages using voice slides
Minimum for fair use
• 3 GB/day after which the speed drops to 512 kbps/min
Service type

Internet packages using data segments
Minimum for fair use
• 6 GB/day after which the speed drops to 1 Mbps at a minimum
• Ensure that no fair-use policy is applied to fixed broadband services or voice services.
