ICASA holds off on Infraco


Holding firm against shortcutting regulation, the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) has refused the immediate granting of both service and network licences to state-owned company Broadband Infraco. This is despite being pressured by parliament to do so.

Both Icasa councillor Fungai Sibanda and Communications Minister Siphiwe Nyanda are questioning why Infraco needs a service licence as well as a network licence. (Infraco aims to provide infrastructure to other providers at wholesale prices and would thus not be involved in the retail market.)
