I don't think the minister has the right to change legislation because she thinks it is "impractical" whatever her definition of "impractical" might be, I suspect it means "too much like actual work interfering with ICASA's perpetual tea breaks".The section 20 amendment seeks to limit the application of Chapter 4 to specific ECNS licensees as prescribed by the Authority [highlight]since it is currently impractical;[/highlight] it also seeks to make better provision for the regulation of ECNS licensees that exercise any rights and obligations under this Chapter.
For a start, is the minister not in contempt of court due to her gazetted intentions of reversing the existing rights of VANS under the ECA as confirmed by the court ruling in Altech's favour? Interdict?Cull added that it is legally problematic to take away rights that licensees currently enjoy through an amendment .
Kinda is. Telkom needs to be correctly regulated to allow competition to grow.On no, sounds like a move Ivy would have made... Further regulation of the industry is not the answer.
I think this is government's way of saving Telkom - get rid of the competition lol...ANC economics 101If MyBB is going to submit a written response, please add the following:
The DoC and ICASA should regulate Telkom and enforce LLU to happen instead of trying to limit companies actually trying to advance broadband in the country.
