Change in article 6.1.3 of the International Telecommunication Regulations (ITRs)
In all studies about roaming in Latin America, double taxation in roaming services is a big obstacle to the service charge reduce.
It is not clear for many countries if the article 6.1.3 of the International Telecommunication Regulations is also valid for roaming services. As a consequence, it was featured that in most of the Latin American countries the double taxation prevails.
Once the intention of the article is to avoid double taxation in telecommunications services, and considering the fact that there were no roaming services when the ITR were signed, we understand that the article 6.1.3 must be reformed to contemplate the roaming services.
Therefore, we would like to support contribution CWG-WCIT12/C - 24.
