Newsflash: There have been a lot of lost opportunities!!!! LLU is just one of them.

Between the Department of Communications and ICASA they couldn't organise a candle to be lit unless it was going to take 5 years and involve multiple tenders, court cases, and cost overruns. :rolleyes:

Ag man , whats a couple of more years ?? we so use to it by now anyways.

It will not get any better as long as Telkom is a tool the gov uses to create jobs artificially and pay buddies big bonuses... Oh yeah... Or to fund propaganda media such as The New Age.

Or launder billions through Nigeria.

Sadly, ICASA was only able to convince Telkom to lower the rates for IP Connect, its wholesale ADSL product, by 30%.

No s**t, the regulator being regulated.Am I missing something?

ICASA went on to promise that it would ensure the implementation of a Bitstream product by November 2012.

And??? We are soooo pregnant with hope.

No.. it's simple.. there was zero serious financial fines for delay. What ICASA continues to fail to understand is that it's the operators duty to protect it's booty. i.e. unless forced to meet a date it will simply not. Sure ICASA may fail to come up with some stuff too but really set a date, set a huge fine for non-compliance and watch how operators will help just to meet it if there is zero room for non-compliance.

We seriously need a government that's serious about business (not only those that feeds the ANC's corruption).

Zuma and his government of 'African traditional approach' needs to go!

Sad part is that we're no closer to the LLU dream than we were in 2008. Telkom knows exactly how to keep ICASA tied up in bureaucratic red tape... so I don't see much hope of this happening in the next 5 years.

That will never happen, they do not understand the world. Progress is a concept they do not grasp, they are not interested in leaving the next generation something decent.
