The Commission’s Regulatory Resources Unit is responsible for regulating Solomon Islands telecommunications sector through licensing. This includes regulation through the issuance of class licences to telecommunications service providers for the operation of telecommunications networks in the Solomon Islands or for the services provided on those networks and through the issuance of radio frequency spectrum licences.
Spectrum licences also grant authorisation for the use of specific radio equipment, provided such equipment comply with technical requirements and standards related to radio interference set by the Commission.
The Commission as regulator of the telecommunications sector is also responsible for the enforcement of the provisions of the Telecommunications Act (2009) and the specific requirements of licences issued under the Act. The Commission is also the administrator of Solomon Islands’ country code top level domain (ccTLD) although this role is delegated to Our Telekom.
