THE National Switch Decree, which will govern e-ticketing in Fiji, has been finalised, according to Attorney-General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum.

"Anybody can get into e-ticketing now, but obviously as government has stated we need to have interoperability," he said.

"Digicel has expressed interest and they are talking to Vodafone and we understand there is a third company."

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said all the companies needed to be interoperable.

"For example, if you as a citizen buy a card from the Digicel outlet, you should be able to use that card in any of the machines, even with the machine that is issued by Vodafone or the third company," Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said.

He said interoperability was critical because every one would have an opportunity to buy tickets from wherever.
