It will enable Telkom to make a few more cents on their internet services. However, multiply the few odd cents by 3 to 4 million and it is a tidy sum

The last mile stranglehold is a national tragedy - a form of useless tax which drains resources, stifles innovation, and drags down GDP growth. Govt must address the crisis and resolve. Everyone will benefit!

Govt is the problem. They won't be addressing anything.

All this stuff makes no difference anymore. The only time we see price changes is when Telkom changes their IPC costs or line rentals

This is probably the fastest and cheapest way to substantially increase broadband penetration. The volumes will make up for the loss in revenue.

Time to hall Telkom into court Mweb, IS, WebAfrica, Datapro, MTN Business & Cybersmart.
Get good lawyers and sue them, for anti-competitive behavior and force there hand for lower IPC.

Or any ISP that buys IPC from Telkom should refuse to peer with them locally and route all Telkom Traffic internationally, Telkom SAIX accounts will be rendered useless and people will flock to other ISP's forcing a reduction in IPC.

Just a thought :whistling:

And, of course, everybody should move to the alternative ADSL providers.

Just saying.
