Telkom calls for more competition in data sector


Telkom says the Competition Commission must apply adequate and effective measures to ensure sustained lower data prices following the agreement between the Commission and Vodacom.

In April, the network giant will be lowering its data prices by 30 percent. Telkom’s Siyabonga Mahlangu said the cost of data reflected in the agreement is higher than the current price of the Telkom’s packages.

Mahlangu insisted Telkom’s prices are competitive and questioned how the competition dynamics would change for other companies in a sustainable way.

He said Icasa must make sure its auction for International Mobile Telecommunication spectrum access has rules and a design that favours competition. Mahlangu said Telkom is confident and hopeful Icasa will take Competition Commission’s lead to ensure competitive behaviour.
