ICASA and FCC agree to collaborate

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has announced it has signed an agreement with the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to share ideas and collaborate on matters of mutual interest.

The agreement comes in the form of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which was signed virtually by both regulators on Thursday afternoon.

"The MOU is a non-binding framework to facilitate exchange of ideas in the field of telecommunications regulation and policy for the mutual benefit of the two regulators," ICASA said.

Does FCC want to be associated with a regulatory (ICASA) that has failed to implement Digital Migration by years to free up frequencies use by analogue TV?

Modimoeng added that ICASA was looking forward to drawing lessons from the FCC, whilst also sharing the African, and in particular, the South African regulatory context, experience and lessons with the United States.
They can teach the FCC how to stall a Digital Migration for a decade

Next statement from ICASA: "Huawei and ZTE banned from South Africa networks due to security concerns"
The relationship between ICASA and the FCC will be BRICked before it ever possibly happens.

ICASA can go suck a tailpipe. Took them 6 months just to approve the new PI 400. They are worse than AIDS...

That's on the DoC, but yes both are equally useless.

Now the FCC will have a good reason to declare internet with a minimum upload of 2Mbps as "broadband".

Some time back ICASA was also invited by Chairman Pai to talk about the fact that net neutrality wasn't necessary because we don't support it and things seem "just fine" on the surface.
