Telkom cries foul over Rain, Vodacom spectrum deal

15 October 2020

Mergence Investment Managers head Peter Takaendesa said the outcome of the case could have implications for the MTN-Cell C deal, as well as the proposed new spectrum allocations scheduled for early next year. The outcome of the Telkom challenge on the Vodacom-Rain agreements is likely to depend so much on the technicalities of those agreements, as we understand that regulatory authorities are largely in favour of infrastructure or network capacity sharing, although this has to be done in a way that encourages competition in the industry,” said Takaendesa.
