Baghdad / Obelisk Al-Hadath: Minister of Communications, Hayam Al-Yasiri, revealed, on Saturday, a new policy for the work of Internet companies in Iraq.
Al-Yasiri said, "The Ministry of Communications received a heavy legacy in the reasons for the non-compliance of some Internet companies, especially the very large companies that monopolize the market, which control more than 80% of the market and have contracts in force."
She added, "The ministry is currently taking measures that amount to litigation in the courts against companies that provide poor service to citizens, and that have not adhered to the ministry's prices."
And she pointed out that “these companies expire the contracts of some of them during the coming months, so the ministry is working from now on preparing new policies and contracts, and certainly will not allow any company that failed to provide the service over the previous years and months to receive new contracts to supply the service, and the field will be made available.” Qualified companies only.
And she emphasized that “the new contracts that will be launched in the last quarter of this year will be different contracts with a new policy, the top priority of which is preventing a specific company from monopolizing the Internet market, while tightening procedures against companies and holding the violators accountable, because the contract is the law of contracting parties.”
