ICASA announces date for spectrum auction

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has announced that it will publish the long-awaited Invitation to Apply for high demand spectrum no later than 30 September 2020.

Since the spectrum is expected to be hotly contested, it is expected that an auction will be used to determine how the spectrum is ultimately assigned. ICASA has said that the auction will be completed no later than 31 March 2020.
Vodacom and MTN have stated that the release of additional spectrum will allow a reduction in prices

Waiting to hear the excuses.
Corruption will kill this process as well.

Poor Black People in rural areas will not benefit an ounce from this process.

I will come back and refer to this post in 2 years time.
