The Communications and Information Technology Commission (CITC) has launched a public consultation document on the current use and future need of the Radio Fixed Links in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
In this consultation, CITC is currently investigating the licensing and assignment procedure of fixed links to help understand whether any changes in the current authorization regime would enhance the way in which frequencies are provided. In addition, CITC is considering re-farming some fixed link bands in order to bring their usage in line with international best practice, and to rationalize the band-plans in use. CITC continues to pursue its mission to protect consumers, promote investment and safeguard competition in order to ensure reliable communications' services and innovative digital technologies.
CITC invites all members of the public, including individuals, public organizations and commercial entities to engage in this process by submitting comments no later than the 30th of March 2021. Participants are invited to provide their views in detail. CITC also encourages participants to support their comments with relevant data, analysis, benchmarking studies and other information. CITC will take all comments into consideration during its deliberation process, but CITC is under no obligation to adopt the comments or proposals of any participant. The consultation document and any responses to it are not binding on CITC.
