  •  Landline telephone

A business operating in the electronic communications sector in Bermuda must have a license to do so.

  • “COL” means a Communications Operating Licence granted under section 16(1) of the ECA and, for the avoidance of doubt, includes an ICOL.
  • “ICOL” means an Integrated Communications Operating Licence described in section 18(1) of the ECA.

Currently there is a moratorium on the issuance of new licences, however, in the event this is lifted and once a licence is issued, the new business can then enter the market.
