January 11, 2022by myles0

MTN has filed papers to oppose rival Telkom’s urgent application to interdict ICASA from proceeding with Invitations To Apply (ITAs) for IMT spectrum. Icasa published the final ITA on 10 December 2021, giving stakeholders until 31 January to submit their applications. MTN South Africa CEO Charles Molapisi said: ‘While the current ITA is not perfect, we believe the regulator has tried to strike a delicate balance for all players. We cannot have a repeat of 2021, where the entire process was delayed for another full year, and that on the back of 14 years of no additional spectrum being added to the industry.’
