Don't be so greedy MTN, says Cell C

2014-02-17 11:23
Cape Town - Icasa, or the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa announced recently that MTRs in SA would be reduced to allow for more competition in the country.

Specifically, MTRs which is the rate that operators charge each other, would be reduced for the larger operators - Vodacom and MTN - while allowing smaller players like Telkom Mobile and Cell C to be more aggressive on pricing.

Cell C has taken exception to MTN's lawsuit against Icasa on MTRs (Mobile Termination Rates), saying that the larger operator is greedy.
