The Falkland Islands Government have announced that Cartesian Ltd have recently been appointed to carry out a strategic review of Telecommunications Provision in the Falklands Islands. Cartesian will be starting work on the review immediately, with the first draft report due on 24th December.

 A team from Cartesian will be visiting the Islands from 1st December 2014 and are hoping to meet with as many stakeholders as possible during their time here.

MLA Roger Edwards, Portfolio Holder for Regulation, has welcomed the appointment: ‘I am pleased Cartesian Ltd have won this contract, and I look forward to their advice and professional input as the telecommunications review takes shape. This is an important piece of work for the Falkland Islands.’

As part of the initial work on the review, Cartesian are hoping to hold conference calls with key stakeholders in the Islands and therefore FIG will shortly be contacting various organizations with a view to arranging suitable times for Cartesian to consult them.

    Argentina has recently launched a new communications Satellite with special coverage of the Falkland Islands and its other South Atlantic territories and Antarctic territories. You would think that the Island leaders who are keen on cooperation with Argentina would see if the could get a good deal for the information hungary islanders . It could be the place to start....but not very secure..........

    Where did you read that the FALKLANDERS are keen to cooperate with Argentina, as Argentina do not recognise the ISLANDERS. THE FALKLANDS are not Argentinian and what other South Atlantic territories and Antartic territories are those?

    “Mr. Mason said he would welcome dialogue between the two tourist boards to work together to achieve a positive result in the tourism sector in the coming years.”
    He would not have said that without instructions from Falkland polititians and this is not the only example of some Falkland polititians who are wearing rose tinted glasses and thinking that they can get cooperation with the Argentinians... without consequences. They (the Falkland polititians) need a good talking to from the electorate....AND when i mentioned this subject on this site a few days ago,it was completely deleted and the thread was interfered with (badly) and who would do that ? the editors normally put “comment deleted” but this was wiped out. Did someone get to the editors/owners or was the site hacked ? By whom and why ?
