The Wireless Telegraphy Act 1926 stipulates that anyone in possession or operation of radio equipment in Ireland must hold an appropriate licence, unless exempted. Licences must be obtained from ComReg, the Commission for Communications Regulation. Ripplecom assists with ComReg licensing as part of our radio link consultancy and deployment service.
ComReg has announced imminent changes to the Non-Geographic Numbers (NGN) platform. From 1 December 2019, calls to 1850, 1890, 0818 and 076 numbers will cost no more than calls to a regular landline number. From 1 January 2022, the 1890, 1850, and 076 NGN ranges will be withdrawn. Only the 1800 and 0818 NGN ranges will remain.
