The Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society (TTCS ; http://cs.tt) will be having a lime on Wednesday July 8 2015 from 7pm to 9pm at Wendy’s Cafe located upstairs at Wendy’s Restaurant at the corner of Ana Street & Ariapita Avenue, Woodbrook, Port of Spain.
Come join as we eat and chat about various ICT topics including:
- the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago’s (TATT’s) consultation document “Towards the Treatment of Over-The-Top (OTT) Services”.
This document focusing particularly on whether or not such OTT services such as VoIP services like Skype, Viber, Whatsapp should be regulated by TATT and if so, determine what regulatory measures should be adopted.
The issues raised in the document are similar to those raised in the joint statement by the Trinidad and Tobago Computer Society, the Internet Society Trinidad and Tobago Chapter and the IEEE Trinidad and Tobago Section on Digicel’s Trinidad and Tobago’s ban on Voice over IP services in 2014.
The TTCS is seeking to respond to this document before the TATT’s deadline on July 20, 2015.
- TSTT’s shutting down email hosting @tstt.net.tt by July 31 2015 (it was extended from June 30 2015)
- the launch of Apple Music
- Microsoft Windows 10 release on July 29 2015.
Anyone interested in computing and ICT are welcome to attend, however please RSVP to [email protected] as space is limited.
Please note that for this meeting, you will be able to purchase food directly from Wendy’s at your own expense. The minimum contribution to TTCS for this meeting is $20.
