DECT compensation?

Allen Lockington,Lautoka
Sunday, March 04, 2018

WE have been told via advertisement in yesterday's The Fiji Times that DECT (Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunications) instruments will have to be surrendered.

They have been found to harmfully interfere with licensed networks operated by mobile telecommunications service providers.

OK fine.

What about the ones that had been imported and gotten approved? What about them?

I know for a fact, when I worked as a Customs officer, many were imported, sent to the relevant ministry and were approved.

Now it has been found to be an interference, so lets get rid of them.

But, people paid good money for these instruments, will they be compensated?

That's all I ask.
