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 Regulatory in sub-Sahara 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 headed by Dr Prince Alex Harding 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.
NATCOM in collaboration with the Sierra Leone police has arrested Forty-Four (44) individuals and confiscated over One Thousand Seven Hundred and Fifty Five unregistered Sim cards (1,755) in an exercise conducted to address the growing concerns of cyber fraud which has been reported to be on the increase in the country.
Online applications are programmes, like ones you would use on your computer such as paint or word, that operate online on a website. Online applications may also be referred to by other names like SaaS or ‘Software as a Service‘ All NATCOM applications can be found here.
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.
