Telkom welcomes ruling on MTR Regulations
Telkom welcomes the South Gauteng High Court ruling on the Mobile Termination
Telkom notes that the court has exercised its discretion in the interest
of the public to allow the mobile termination rate of 20 cents and the
asymmetric rate of 44 cents to be implemented for the next six months,
effective 1 April 2014.
Within the six month period the Independent Communications Authority of
South Africa (ICASA) must complete a costing exercise and follow due process.
Telkom will support ICASA in completing this process effectively and efficiently.
The Company believes that the ruling is in the best interest of the industry
and will go far in reducing the cost to communicate for consumers and stimulating
competition in the industry.
