Our discussion this afternoon regarding Council's request that Telkom
respond at the end of all the oral representations on Monday 18 April
2005 at midday refers.
Telkom would be pleased to respond at the end of the oral
representations. Telkom is, however, unable to commit to answering to
any specific issues raised by any of the representations as most
members of Telkom's panel will be unable to attend the full
proceedings for the four days. Telkom's response will, however, be
guided by the oral presentations themselves. Telkom is prepared to
also answer in writing to ICASA on any substantive matter raised in
We trust that the above response meets with the Council's approval.

> Dear Colleagues, Telkom's media release w.r.t. Subject matter:
> Media Release
> 31 March 2005
> Telkom urges customers to be patient as it tackles system problem
> Telkom has urged its customers to be patient as it works flat out to
> tackle a system problem that has seen some call centres not
> responding promptly to their calls.
> This system problem has caused unusually high levels of calls to
> Telkom reporting centres, in particular 1023 for directory services
> and 10212 for fault reporting.
> Telkom appeals to customers to report their service faults only
> once, and then retain the system-allocated reference number, as
> people calling to report the same outage contribute to the high
> volume of calls - causing further delays in response time.
> We want to assure customers that, once a fault has been reported and
> a reference number assigned, every effort will be made to resolve it
> within reasonable time.
> Telkom regrets the system problem, and urges customers to use
> alternative channels to register their service enquiries as it makes
> strides to improve the response time at it call centres. These
> include logging their faults electronically via the www.telkom.co.za
> <http://www.telkom.co.za> website by completing an online form,
> calling during non-busy hours or visiting Telkom Direct outlets. For
> directory enquiries, to visit either www.yellowpages.co.za
> <http://www.yellowpages.co.za> for business listings and
> <http://phonebook.yellowpages.co.za> to access the electronic white
> pages for residential listings.
> Telkom further advises customers to first check the telephone and
> associated equipment connected to the line before reporting the
> service faulty.
> They can do so by plugging in a spare or a neighbour's telephone,
> and if there is dial tone, the line is in working order and the
> problem is likely to be with the customer's own equipment.
