The IDA thanks these respondents for their comments.
IDA will consider the inputs received and targets to approve the amendments to SingTel's RIO by 3rd quarter 2002.

Notes to the Editor :
1 The RIO sets out the prices, terms and conditions for other telecom licensees to access SingTel's network. This is required under the Code of Practice for Competition in the Provision of Telecommunication Services (Telecom Competition Code). The RIO aims to facilitate rapid adoption of reasonable interconnection agreements and reduce the timeframe for interconnection negotiations between SingTel and other telecom licensees.
