How exactly will this be game changing? What has changed in the MVNO landscape?

Are they not still confined to the commercial agreements with the operator whos network they are using?

I foresee the typical bundling of services, all branded with the "for the people, by the people" slogan.

If he is waiting for the open access network then I suspect he will be waiting a very .... very .... veeeeerrrrrrry long time.

In October 2016, Kumalo told the Financial Mail [highlight]the South African mobile industry can no longer be dominated by two players[/highlight], adding that meaningful competition is needed to drive down prices.
Big promises that amount to pointless pandering.

MyBroadband asked [highlight]Washirika Holdings[/highlight] for further comment regarding its MVNO plans, but the company did not respond by the time of publication.
Does that name mean something? The name makes it sound like a vehicle for money laundering, either that or Irika is a bit dirty and needs some "holdings".

Follow the money...
The consumer only benefits in an open, transparent, and equal market.
Sure it can all run on one great redundant system, but if the elite control the gateways, you will continue to have the same plague, albeit under a different name.

And also, for all the latest government talk about internet access, where are the serious discussions around zero rating essential data, such as education, etc?

These a$$hats have been putting the cart in front of the horse, for the last 20 years.
