I believe you are correct except no one from the ISPs have agreed to what form of bitstreaming will be used and who will pay for what Equipment and how it will terminate, to many questions on LLU still to be answered
well its inevitable: the Facilities Leasing Regulations apply, LLU regulation process should be about facilitating the process such that it doesn't become a high yield exchange tiff. Neotel has every reason to demand access to exchanges where they can make easy money.
Seems like they are saying that the Facilities regulations do actually exist and therefore need to be enforced as they are. One cannot say that because a law or regulation is due to be changed soon, parties should wait for the change before acting.
That's my take on it anyway.
What's not clear is exactly what action now needs to be taken by Telkom and Neotel. I guess the action is take the Facilities regulations and implement them as they are in the case of LLU.
BTW - I think this is a great move by an ICASA body.
While this is a welcome ruling, I doubt it will change anything tbh.... plus I'm not all that ecstatic about Neotottie trying to provide Wired services... I don't think the company is actually up to it for a residential market.
