I just wonder, for how much longer are we going to have government-controlled telcos competing amongst themselves in the data communication arena. I mean, look at the scene now - we have:
1. Telkom - govt controlled
2. Sentech - govt controlled
3. SNO - govt controlled once again through direct and indirect shareholdings
Who is next to join the club? We are running out of companies here - most of them are already involved.

Maybe a bit off-topic.. Which of the political parties has even addressed this issue? From what I have seen, NONE.
This should be a question that is asked of all presidential hopefuls.
As Danny Glover said in Lethal Weapon 2 "Free South Africa you..." I left the rest out to keep it from being removed.. but those of you that have seen the movie, know what he said.
It is time to the interests of all persons (and businesses) in South Africa on the agenda, and not just the historically disadvantaged. Then again, anyone that has had to deal with the government owned and/or control of all public utilities and sectors, should be considered historically disadvantaged.
It's like they just took the pie and cut it into pieces to make the public think that they are making progress. But the truth is the state is still getting the taxes from the individual pieces of the pie. The public as always foots the bill.

I just watched an interview with Pieter Dirk Uys on kyknet, and he said about democracy: "Ons, die mense moet lei, en die regering moet volg."
Any country with any sort of monopoly...is not truely a democracy.
Might just well go back to Carl Marx's theories.
Whoop Di Doo Basil...But What Does It All Mean???
