1 - If you want to run an ISP in South Africa, you must pay the regulated fee
2 - If the ISP has not paid, and repeated requests have been made for payment, ICASA is by law entitled to act
3 - So, has iBurst paid or has it not? An "intention" to pay is not the same in law as an actual payment. Has the money hit the bank or not?
If I were an iBurst subscriber, I would be looking for an alternative provider at this moment
Exactly.. this iBurst thing has gone on for months now and prior to that, the clamp down by ICASA on wireless links was well published and made news everywhere due to the costs. So if they want to drag it out forever and ever then you have to accept the risk involved and also that you clients aren't that important for you to take that risk.. I think they got caught out expecting ICASA to just say fine, lets renegotiate until they get what they want. Too bad..
