Radio-Frequency Radiation Test Results
Friday, October 30, 2015


The Authority publishes the results of the 2014-2015 Radio-Frequency Radiation Test

 

Since its establishment in July 2004, the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (TATT) has been actively engaged in
efforts to determine the strictest possible internationally acceptable limits for radio-frequency radiation from all radiotransmitting
equipment, including cell sites, in Trinidad and Tobago and ensure providers of telecommunications services abide by these strict limits.

To ensure all providers of mobile telephone services, who are operators of licenced radiotramsmitting equipment, abide by these strict standards, TATT engages in a continuous programme of measuring and recording radio-frequency radiation emissions from cellular towers throughout the country and the results are published in the newspapers.

The measurements recorded are for 150 cell sites and are between 91 and 42 500 times lower than the interim maximum permissible exposure limit set by TATT.

In 2013 the Telecommunications Authority of Trinidad and Tobago (the Authority) conducted its second digital divide survey.
