    I do not know why we even listen to the rubbish these idiots spew anymore.
    You are battling a sliding share price because you are living in the dark ages !!

    They plan to do this and that, but in the end all of the planning in the world is useless if you don't take action. Since last year there hasn't been any note worthy improvement. If someone didn't tell me that Telkom got a new CEO back then, I would never have guessed it. In the end Telkom hasn't improved at all in a long LONG time.

    So how does one gauge the performance of monopoly company when there is no comparison group to measure it against? Nice.

    Everyday i pray i get an upgrade at the exchange for 10MB but after speaking to a very talkative birdy (lol), their plans are to rollout a wireless phone system replacing the analogue lines and this will happen at no cost (apparently) to existing customers and will happen in the farm areas .

    So whatever plans they got for their broadband will have to wait it seems (yes am aware they have different divisions) but i rather they would focus on getting one tech solution right than spanning multiple with a failure rate larger than a dodo (bad analogy heh).

    So Moholi, listen to your customers if you want to reign supreme on the Telkom fatcat chair and not end up like (the one we do not speak off anymore) .

    My Telkom experience has not changed in 5 years. That means it is just as crap as it always has been.

    I think the big problem Telkom is facing is that they screwed up fixed line data as a product in SA and still haven't made a compelling mobile offering linked to their fixed line. 2ndly their existing systems needs to be spruced up a lot. I logged into online bill the other day.. guess what, it's still more or less(front end slightly different) the same as it was more than 5 yrs ago.

    At the current rate their monopoly doesn't matter as much any more and its falling away too. I think they need to reconsider ADSL as a bolt on service and make it a basic service with the flat rate closer packages.. oh wait, they getting killed off with IPC profits getting cut <-- see what i mean? It's like strategies to make fixed line the service you want just wont work any more because that time has come and gone.

    One thing she has done right though is upgrading the current network and the mobile arm. Whether they will actually be able to deliver services and integrated services across the access method at a profitable yet competitive price remains to be seen.
    When have you demonstrated leadership skills?

    Unless people are employed that are skilled in company turnarounds, nothing serious will happen. These people are generally financial people who got it right with smaller entities first.

    If you don't have this skill in the first place how do you know what to do?

    Mweb hide their financials?

    Really?

    So it has absolutely nothing to do with Mweb being a part of Naspers, and that their financials are part of Naspers financials?

    I fully agree.Telkom is holding on to such a precious commodity/technology, and they are fumbling whilst being the monopoly on the technology.How envious are those with the know how and competence to utilise the technology for their benefit and the country's benefit.
