TATT on cable rate increases: Consumers have many choices

Tuesday, July 26, 2016 - 20:00

"The Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (the Authority) notes recent media publications and commentaries with regard to increasing rates for subscription television (pay TV) by local providers and the corresponding concerns expressed by consumers on the proposed rate increases.

The Authority has worked to ensure that the pay TV television market in Trinidad and Tobago is an open one where consumer choice will drive demand and determine price.

The Authority recognises that there are concerns raised by both operators and consumers and stresses that consumers have the right to exercise choice.

The Authority has been working to improve consumer choice in the telecommunications and broadcasting markets.

To this end the local pay TV market has been liberalised to include thirteen (13) operators servicing both national and niche markets throughout Trinidad and Tobago.

Consumers are urged to become familiar with these operators and their prices so that they can make rational choices.

A full list of pay TV operators in alphabetical order is available on our website."
