It`s a duopoly!

In a classic case of stating the obvious, the Competition Commission says there`s no competition in the local telecoms space.

01 November 2008

The Competition Commission's annual report, released in early October, delivers a scathing indictment on the state of the local telecommunications sector, and the lack of competition therein.

According to the report, the local telecoms market structure lends itself to anti-competitive practices. "Telkom belongs to the category of firms that are formerly state-owned and is super-dominant, even with the entry of Neotel. Neotel has already stated publicly that it will not be competing with Telkom on pricing and its entry simply creates a duopoly."
