lately ive been talking to

lately ive been talking to an it-trainer in the Kofi-Annan-Center (aiti-kace) about this particular question. he was of the same opinion as dr. seth kumi: probably there is no law on the regulatory policy yet, but responsible institutions to side occasionally. Further he was convinced of WIFI being considered free licensed within these institutions. still we need to verify this by direct communication with these institutions. find the institutions and related infomration on regulatory policy for telecommunication in the following link:
