This is according to the draft copy of the modified Registration of Telephone Subscribers Regulations published on the commission’s website.

The regulation states:

Subscriber means a person not below the age of 18 years who subscribes to communications services by purchasing a subscription medium or entering into a subscription contract with a license.”
