Opposition Blasts Govt for Falling ICT Rating

98

Opposition Spokesman on Information Communication Technologies, CT and Digital Society Development, Dr. Andrew Wheatley is blaming a lack of vision for Jamaica’s ten place decline in the recently published International Telecoms Union-ICT Development Index.

The index measures key ICT indicators including mobile-cellular subscriptions, Internet use, fixed and mobile broadband services along with home ICT access.

Dr. Wheatley says he’s disappointed and concerned that Jamaica is now ranked as the worst performing country in the Caribbean.

Dr. Wheatley says the PNP administration has failed to take a clear policy stance on matters including the formation of a Single ICT Regulator, VoIP blocking and Over the Top Services.
