Icasa delays call rate cuts
The postponement will allow the regulator time to respond to court challenges by Vodacom & MTN.
JOHANNESBURG - The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) on Friday announced it would delay the introduction of planned call rate cuts by two months.
Icasa had planned to slash mobile termination rates by 50 percent at the start of March but has now moved that date to 1 May.
The rates affect the fees companies charge each other for calls between different networks.
The regulator plans to continue bringing down the rates over the next three years.
