Telecommunications Law

Thanks to foreign investments made possible by the privatization of the telecommunications industry, Nicaragua’s telecommunication system is fast becoming state-of-the-art. In addition, there are multiple privately-owned TV networks and radio stations. As private companies seek to break into this newly-privatized field, they must comply with rules and regulations promulgated by the government and designed to ensure access to telecommunications services for all Nicaraguan citizens.

The National Institute of Telecommunications and Posts is the government agency responsible for overseeing telecommunications-related activities in Nicaragua. The office is responsible for setting out rules and monitoring compliance with laws regarding the installation, interconnection, operation and provision of telecommunications services. Native Nicaraguan legal counsel can help private investors looking to enter the Nicaraguan telecommunications field secure necessary permits and carry out their business plans with minimal disruption.
