Icasa extends CPS timeline

2011-08-08 12:32
Cape Town - The Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa) has extended implementation of the timeline for carrier pre-selection (CPS) phase 1 to November 30, it announced on Monday.

Icasa published carrier pre-selection (CPS) regulations on September 27 2010, to establish a framework for subscribers to an electronic communications service (ECS) licensee could access the services of another ECS licensee on a call-by-call basis by adding an access code to the front of a dialled number, it said in a statement.

The authority had since engaged with industry on progress of CPS phase 1 implementation.

It was from those engagements that Icasa decided to develop an industry-led CPS code of conduct / practice to be completed in September.

A general notice containing full details on these developments would be published in the Government Gazette in due course, Icasa said.
