The Communications Authority of Kenya (CA) is the regulatory authority for the ICT industry in Kenya with responsibilities in telecommunications, cyber security, e-commerce, broadcasting and postal/courier services. CA is also responsible for managing the country’s numbering and frequency spectrum resources, administering the Universal Service Fund as well as safeguarding the interests of users of ICT services.
In furtherance of its responsibility to develop a responsive legal, regulatory and licensing regime, and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Authority has formulated a draft Licensing and Shared Spectrum Framework for Community Networks.
The framework was developed in partnership with the Kenya ICT Action Network (KICTANet), the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland and supported by the United Kingdom’s Digital Access Programme.
The Authority therefore invites comments from all stakeholders, including members of the public, licensees utilizing spectrum resources and government institutions on the proposed framework available on the Authority’s website at: https://www.ca.go.ke/consumers/public-consultations/open-consultations/
This consultation process is meant to give stakeholders and the public an opportunity to comment on the proposed draft framework.
Any comments or memoranda should be sent to the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or the official address below, before the close of day on 1st June 2021.
The comments received will inform adoption of the Licensing and Shared Spectrum Framework for Community Networks in Kenya.
