I am just wondering if the tune would be the same if these wanted LTE frequencies were just made available in rural areas?
Or is there some major point that I am miising by a mile?
Which is why I asked for the definition (as per the DoC)....what do you take to be decent broadband?
The radio network fundis will have to confirm but I actually suspect that with LTE you are looking at ranges on some frequencies of up to 100Km now when you share this between lots of people the speeds are pretty bad but you can get really good rural coverage. LTE is not about speed. It is about the Long Term Evolution of GSM (and CDMA actually) into an all-IP network architecture that uses technology smartly.
At the end of the day deep in the bundu can only realistically depend on satellite based broadband access but this shouldn't be a crisis if the overall ecosystem works.
Unless they amend their definition of broadband and include affordability clauses, they don't need to do a thing!!!!Bla bla bla dont talk just do it, sick and tired of hearing the same bull shyt .
JUST DO IT ALREADY.

The current definition of broadband brings satellite services into the frame, which covers all the "dead" spots on the SA map.
Ergo - all South Africans have ACCESS to a broadband service.
Yep, nowhere in the current DoC broadband definition does it state that it must be fixed line services...
