Thank you Mr Fialkov. You comments to the market are welcomed on this. I hope this get more vocal and more out to the business sector to see Seacom anti competitive behaviour affecting the market.

ISPA really needs to learn from the past when IS and Telkom destroyed competition with their behaviour. You need to get involved more ISPA and change policy around this. You have hundreds of members many of which are small are being discriminated against because of larger ISP abuse.

SEACOM’s decision to move from open peering policy to selective peering, and cut off numerous ISPs in the process, has come under fire from some industry players.
Can we have a list of the "numerous ISPs" that have been cut off.

Not sure why you asking for the list but I am sure the policy would apply to the following small members at least
Those who customers of Seacom will be exempted I assume.
I would assume businesses that peer at NAP would also lose this status.

Just want to quantify the nebulous "numerous".
Is there a pattern to the discrimination?
Does the pattern reveal a reason for the decision?

Without details it could be 2 or 100 ISPs.
