In accordance with Law No. 24-96 on postal and telecommunications services, as amended and supplemented, and in particular Articles 1.9, 3, 9 and 14, the establishment and operation of independent networks are subject to prior approval by the National Telecommunications Regulatory Agency.
An independent network is defined as a telecommunications network, necessarily and exclusively used for the needs of the person (natural or legal) creating the network without commercial purpose.
A network is considered of private use when the person creating it intends it for use. It is called shared-use when used by a company or its subsidiaries and branches in order to share internal communications within the same group.
Technically, independent networks use their own infrastructure created by or on behalf of persons or entities that wish to use them.
