Regulator orders French telecom to halt ads for 4-G services
Santo Domingo.- The Dominican Telecom Institute (Indotel) on Wednesday temporarily suspended the marketing and advertising of the "4G-LTE" plan offered by the service provider Orange Dominicana.
Indotel Resolution 113-12 issued today states that it received a notice from the also provider Claro, for the regulatory agency "to take the necessary steps to ensure that the provisions of the services advertised (4G) were being done under the current regulations."
Indotel said it decidedd to visit the Orange branch on Romulo Betancourt Av., where it was found that currently (July this year), “there’s no availability of plans or contracts for 4G -LTE internet service. When the user requests said service, the contract provided for the moment, is the one corresponding to 3G Internet service."
The regulator said the suspension is a precautionary measure, involving the removal of all advertising in relation to 4G-LTE service and ordered the sale of “fourth generation” services suspended.
