Cellphone number portability to cut costs

25  May  2006
Lesley Stones Information Technology Editor BUSINESSES could enjoy substantially lower cellphone bills when number portability arrived in September, and all their employees could switch to one cellular network without losing their existing numbers. Calls between colleagues could easily drop by 90c a minute when they were all served by one operator and avoid the premium charged for routing calls from one network to another. Telecommunications consultant Ewan Sutherland said most companies would ...

Internet firms take on Telkom

25  May  2006
Ana Monteiro Posted: Thu, 25 May 2006 08:00 | © Moneyweb Holdings Limited, 1997-2006 Internet service providers Mweb and Dimension Data’s Internet Solutions (IS) say Telkom’s stranglehold on all aspects of the broadband over copper lines – or ADSL – market is preventing them from offering competitive services. The Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) is hearing opinions from industry and the public on the draft regulations it put out late last year concerning the price and quality of ...

S.African phone security law "impossible" - Vodacom

25  May  2006
Thu May 25, 2006 10:44 AM GMT JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A proposed law forcing South Africans to register personal details before they can get a cell phone will deprive millions of communication and stop many from finding work, operator Vodacom said on Thursday. Vodacom, jointly owned by South Africa's fixed-line operator Telkom and Britain's Vodafone, said more than 15 million South Africans do not have a formal address, making it impossible for companies to register all their customers. "Deprivin...
 

Crime bill a threat to users - Vodacom

25  May  2006
May 25, 2006 By Stewart Bailey Vodacom Group Ltd, South Africa's largest mobile-phone provider, said 20 million pre-paid users may be barred from networks under a proposed crime prevention law requiring it to cut service unless customers' identity details are provided. Most of those don't have the luxury of living in homes with addresses that make any sense, or they're employed in the informal sector,'' Alan Knott-Craig, Chief Executive Officer of the Midrand, South Africa-based company, said to...
 

New voice carrier for SA

25  May  2006
Communications minister Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri used her budget vote address as an opportunity to announce far-reaching changes to the telecommunications legal landscape that will inevitably result in more competition, choice and access for South Africans. Among the changes, the SA Broadcasting Corporation’s signal carrier Sentech will be allowed to carry voice to end-users, becoming a competitor to Telkom, the mobile operators and the second network operator, SNO Telecom, when it eventually rolls out ser...
 

We’re stuck with the minister, but let’s give her bill the push

24  May  2006
Robyn Chalmers I WONDER when it will occur to opposition political parties, and particularly the Democratic Alliance (DA), that calling for the resignation of a minister has exactly the opposite effect: it entrenches his or her position? And anyway, it seems so pointless. There are ministers who have consistently underperformed during President Thabo Mbeki’s term of office while others have made serious gaffs. Yet the only person who has been fired in the past seven years of Mbeki’s administration has be...

End to ADSL monopoly in sight?

24  May  2006
Ana Monteiro Posted: Wed, 24 May 2006 08:00 | © Moneyweb Holdings Limited, 1997-2006 Communications Minister Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri is expected to introduce measures to increase competition in the telecoms market in her budget speech on Thursday. Users and prospective users of high-speed internet services delivered via the copper cables that lead into homes (the service known as ADSL) have been waiting for the policy directives which will include introducing some level of competition on the Telkom-co...

BY ITUMELENG MOGAKI, ITWEB JUNIOR JOURNALIST [Johannesburg, 24 May 2006] - The Eastern Africa Submarine Cable System Network (Eassy) will be commercially available in 2008, says the Nepad e-Africa Commission.
