The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) today (5 October 2011) released the details about its long awaited public Local Loop Unbundling (LLU) hearings.

ICASA said in a press statement that LLU is a regulatory initiative to facilitate improved end-user quality of service and lower retail prices in the provision of Internet services.
