7 April 2006

ICSTIS has issued a statement updating the industry on developments and decisions made following a representation by the Mobile Broadband Group (MBG) to the icstis Committee in March putting forward proposals for the introduction of a prior-permission regime and Code of Conduct to supervise 'supplementary charging' for the third party voice services.

At the time of writing a meeting is being organised between Ofcom, icstis and the MBG to further discuss options in moving forward. A further update will be issued following this meeting.
