ICASA to charge operators fees for emergency COVID-19 spectrum

ICASA has announced that it will extend the validity period of temporarily assigned emergency spectrum, but operators will be charged if they wish to continue using it.

"In light of the fact that the auctioning of the high demand spectrum will occur in March 2021, the Council of the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA/Authority) has approved the amendment of the ICT COVID-19 National State of Disaster Regulations in order to extend the validity period of the temporary assignment of radio frequency spectrum (“temporary spectrum”) to no later than 31 March 2021," ICASA said in a statement on Friday.

If we get another lockdown, national or district based which the WC government was discussing yesterday, will they refund the operators?
