Now he says "do not be afraid of competition".
He informed the public that the Government has given Timor Telcom 6 months until March 2010 to cover the entire country with their network or there will have to be a renegotiation of the monopoly that Timor Telcom currently holds.
Horta said that he is in support of liberalising the telecomunications sector in TL.
