ICASA to Implement Termination Rate Cuts

ICASA to implement cuts to termination charges from 1 April 2014

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) is expected to implement cuts to termination charges, the rates that cellphone users pay for calls between different networks from 1 April 2014.

The reduced rates follow a ruling by the South Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg that ICASA could go ahead with its new regulations for six months, but must amend them in that time. 

Meanwhile, Telkom Mobile's Pieter Grootes says: "The effect of the judgement is that the cost to terminate a call on a mobile network will be reduced to 20 cents.”
