Trinidad & Tobago Telecom Operators, Digicel and TSTT signed the Code of Practice on Wednesday 20th July, 2016. This Code of Practice has been developed to ensure that customers and other stakeholders can have confidence that end users will be able to access lawful content and applications that content providers wish to make available over the Internet.

CANTO shares with the Policy Makers, Regulators and Operators a common responsibility to promote growth and development of the Sector; this Code of Practice demonstrates a voluntary obligation towards preserving the Open Internet on behalf of the Operators in the region. Based on the principles of self-regulation, the Code promotes constant dialogue with all stakeholders and encourages good business practices.
CANTO and its members support the concept of the Open internet and the general principle that legal content, applications and services, should not be blocked.

More Network Operators are expected to sign the Code of Practice at the CANTO conference in Puerto Rico from the 31st July – 3rd August, 2016.

Julian Wilkins, Chairman of the CANTO Board stated that the Code of Practice balances the needs and freedoms of end users and content providers with the requirement of Network Operators to run their networks and their corresponding freedom to innovate and develop new services and business models.
