The Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry of Brunei Darussalam (AITI) conducted several inspections around Jalan Muara area.
 
A total of six (6) premises were issued notifications of offence for operating satellite equipment without a valid licence and were advised to apply for one. The inspected premises comprised of shops, restaurants and private housing. One of the equipment found in possession on one of the premises was an Orange decoder that is connected to a Kristal Astro satellite dish and this practice is considered to be illegal in Brunei.
