Regulation of interconnection is a vital tool for the creation of a fair, efficient and competitive telecommunications market. Interconnection basically involves the linking up of two information and communication networks to enable users of each network to interact with one another, notably through the use of information and communication services.

In accordance with Section 28 of the ICT Act 2001 (as amended), licensees are mandated to grant access to their network and are encouraged to enter into interconnection agreements through commercial negotiations.

The ICT Authority plays an active role by setting the interconnection usage charges, particularly for voice services, through regular issuance and revision of Telecom Directives.
