The session also seek ways of resolving problems of frequency interference and the rational management of frequency resources to meet the exigencies of the digital switch over of television broadcast.

The Minister of Post and Telecommunication, Jean Pierre Biyiti Bi Essame told experts at the two day meeting taking place in Yaoundé that a committee is currently rehabilitating the Mbankolo transmission centre responsible for the negative frequency interferences.

Minister Jean Pierre Biyiti Bi Essame noted that the demand for frequency resources has greatly increased with the introduction of a third mobile operator.

Another reason for the boom is the renewal of the licences to operate for the two other telephone service providers with options to obtain 3G options and the allocation of GSM services to Camtel.
