LLU findings released tomorrow

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) will release the findings of the inquiry into the ICASA framework for introducing Local Loop Unbundling (LLU) tomorrow (30 November 2011).

LLU is the regulatory process of allowing multiple telecommunications operators to lease the Local Loop – which is that portion of a network that connects the subscriber to the balance of an ECNS licensee’s Electronic Communications Network.

The regulator invited stakeholders to a briefing at their offices in Sandton, where they will shed some light on the way forward when it comes to LLU in South Africa.

Industry speculation suggest that the findings document will only focus on fixed-line unbundling, and not include mobile LLU as many industry players have hoped for.
