South Africa to lower mobile call tariff

(Reuters/NAN) South Africa could impose a new plan to lower mobile call termination rates when the current three-year regulations end on Sept. 30, the telecom regulator’s acting chairman said on Wednesday.

Mr Rubben Mohlaloga, an Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) Councillor and Acting Chairman made the plan known to reporters in parliament in Cape Town.

“As to whether we will determine a new glide path or will then regulate certain aspects of the voice market, it’s a decision that we will make and that will be in effect from Oct. 1,”Mohlaloga said.

ICASA in 2014 implemented a three-year “glide path”, the timetable for bringing down rates gradually for telecoms companies, including Vodacom and MTN.
