Colombian ICT ministry Mintic has presented a new bill to modernise the ICT sector that aims to revive a project to create a unified regulator for the country's communications industry, reports Telesemana. An earlier bid to merge telecommunications watchdog CRC and TV authority ANTV was withdrawn in June after disagreements with senators regarding public TV funding. The plan to create a single entity called the Communications Commission was initially submitted by former ICT minister David Luna last October and supported by entities such as the GSMA.
