So what exactly did ICASA do for us? Since We are the Guavamint and We own Telkom why can't We enforce the changes? Elections are coming up, please go and vote!
Which all goes to confirm that government has to regulate if it wants to reduced prices. Making it optional is hilarious.
For those who like to knock Neotel - well I pay 0.95c to call cell phones during the day and 0.85c off-peak. Haha!
Why does ICASA always have to drop the bloody ball? What is the point of forcing everyone to lower termination rates when you aren't going to force them to pass those savings on to consumers? Then was the force in rate reduction really about the consumer or was it, as I suspected all along, really about 8ta? was this all really just about getting cheaper interconnect fees for Telkom's new baby?
And don't forget about all those operators who did NOT pass on the savings in the first round last year...Why all the hate? They have said they will send through 50 to 70 percent of the reduction of the mtr. Vodacom and Mtn are doing zip. Hell even our beloved cell c has not made a sound.
I hate telkom as much as the next guy but lets not get irrational guys.
