The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) will release its draft on call termination regulations for public comment on Friday.
The Draft Call Termination Regulations will specify the regulator’s rules on revised termination tariffs and potential levels of asymmetry for accessibility to smaller players.
The setup of the Draft Regulations follows the reviewing of the 2010 Call Termination Regulations as part of the Cost to Communicate Programme aimed to reduce communication costs in South Africa.
According to ICASA, it is serious about ensuring termination rates in South Africa are affordable, with the possibility of offering rates as low at ZAR0.15 (US$0.1) for cost of mobile call termination.
HumanIPO reported earlier today on Internet Solutions’ view on what should be included in the ICASA Amendment Bill.
