“More importantly, the Authority is mindful of the need to focus its efforts on the permanent licensing of spectrum,” Icasa stated, adding that it is important that the industry be allowed adequate time to plan and adjust their operations."
adequate time? the public and private business' view of 'adequate time' generally is different to governments view of adequate time.
gov's generally useless people, and idiotic delays are part of the reason that proper spectrum hasnt properly been allocated long ago already.
'Africa time' and tech progress dont go together nicely

So Rain will suck again.
Wait, what? hold up. When was rain ever fast. :p


Well for me thankfully, fixed LTE and LTE coverage here was before the extra spectrum, not in a very congested area either, calls maybe, but data however I have free reign for the most.

As much as the spectrum handling by icasa is ****up, this news is pure clickbait rubbish.
How can it be a shock if the recent deadline was today. Is it shocking that it has been extended?
