South Africa: ICASA eyes new mobile tariff regulations

South Africa could impose a new plan to lower mobile call termination rates when the current three-year regulations end on 30 September, reports Reuters citing the telecom regulator’s acting chairman. Rubben Mohlaloga, an ICASA councillor and acting chairman said the decision on whether to determine a new glide path or regulate certain aspects of the voice market, will be known on 1 October.

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) in 2014 implemented a three-year “glide path”, a timetable for bringing down rates gradually for telecoms companies, including Vodacom and MTN.
