MLA Pollard speaks on telecommunications alternatives

A question about reducing the VSAT fee was raised in the last legislative assembly sitting. Currently fees are just over £5,000 which MLA Barkman expressed concern about being ‘discriminatory’ to those with a valid reason for needing a VSAT.

MLA Spink said there would be implications to changing the fee as it is linked to the current Sure contract. The current exclusive license with Sure is due to end in 2027, and we spoke to MLA Pollard as to whether work has started on looking at alternatives.
