Telecom Operators of Small States
Hosted by JT
20-22 May 2015 – Jersey
The Forum for Telecom Operators of Small States (“Teleforum”) was established through a meeting held in London in September 2000. The purpose of the Teleforum is for participants to share experiences, address issues faced by small operators, undertake group initiatives of mutual benefit and to lobby for common interests as appropriate.
The Teleforum encourages initiatives which include knowledge sharing, consultations, training, pooling of resources and discussions on the legal, regulatory, technical and commercial environment of the telecommunications industry.
JT hosted the Teleforum meeting on Thursday, 21st and Friday, 22nd May, preceded by a workshop on 20th May 2015. The meeting was held at the Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel.
With up to 70 attendees, including approximately 17 CEOs and Chief Officers from the Small State Operators from countries such as Aland Island, Andorra, Cabo Verde, Cyprus, Faroe Islands, Gibraltar, Greenland, Guyana, Iceland, Isle of Man, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, San Marino and Suriname.
