Termination rate ruling welcome: Telkom

Telkom welcomed the South Gauteng High Court ruling on the new mobile termination regulations, the company said in a press statement on Monday, 31 March 2014.

“The court has exercised its discretion in the interest of the public to allow the mobile termination rate of 20 cents and the asymmetric rate of 44 cents to be implemented for the next six months, effective 1 April 2014,” Telkom said.

“Within the six month period the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) must complete a costing exercise and follow due process,” Telkom said, adding that it will support Icasa in completing this process effectively and efficiently.

Telkom said that it believes the ruling is in the best interest of the industry and that it “will go far in reducing the cost to communicate and stimulating competition in the industry.”
