The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry (AITI) is a statutory body which is responsible for:

  • Telecommunications and radiocommunications regulation
  • Radiofrequency spectrum planning and management
  • ICT industry development

AITI was established on 1 January 2003 by the AITI Order 2001 to function as telecommunications regulator, national radio-frequency spectrum manager and developer of Brunei Darussalam's ICT industry

On 1 April 2006, the Telecommunications Successor Company Order 2001 and Telecommunications Order 2001 were brought into force. This had the effect of corporatizing the Telecommunications Department, Ministry of Communications to become Telekom Brunei Berhad (TelBru) and transferring the regulatory authority of the Director of Telecommunications which resided at the Telecommunications Department, Ministry of Communications to AITI. Prior to this, the Telecommunications Department performed the dual functions of regulator and service provider.
