NATCOM'S Mission & Vision
The Commission’s Mission and Vision are contained in its Five-year Strategic plan as follows:
To foster a progressive and enabling environment for the development of the ICT industry in Sierra Leone
To be a leading ICT Regulator in sub-Saharan Africa
The National Telecommunications Commission (NATCOM)
The National Telecommunications Commission (NATCOM) was established by an Act of Parliament in 2006 to regulate the Sierra Leone telecoms sector, protect consumer interest and ensure fair competition among service providers. The current Board of Commissioners of NATCOM was headed by Dr Prince Alex Harding who is perhaps the fourth in a row since the Commission became fully operational in April 2007. The day–to–day administration and management of the Commission is entrusted in the office of the Director General headed by Mr. Maxwell Massaquoi.

The Governments idea to take full ownership of the project is currently paying dividends to the public while many continue to enjoy a free flow of fast and reliable internet service. The decision taken by the Government to ensure that Sierra Leoneans own the Submarine Fibre Optic Cable was a way of enabling a positive environment in which the private sector can flourish.
