The Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association (WASPA) said there are now 390 South African mobile content and application providers committed to upholding the association’s code of conduct.
“Version 14.6 of the WASPA code of conduct remains a living document in step with the latest mobile developments,” said WASPA.
The WASPA code of conduct aims to protect South African mobile consumers by imposing and enforcing regulations regarding practices such as mobile content advertising.
WASPA was founded on 26 August 2004 in South Africa with the support of Cell C, MTN, and Vodacom.
The association is a non-profit organisation which helps regulate the wireless content and applications industry.
