ICASA Call Termination Rates
07 Sep 14


ICASA earlier last week revealed their new Draft Call Termination Regulations 2014

The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) is responsible for overseeing three communication tiers in South Africa, namely: telecommunications, broadcasting and postal services sector.

On Thursday, 4 September 2014 ICASA revelled to the telecommunications sector its new draft Call Termination rates.

Call Termination Rates are the fees MTN, Cell C, Vodacom, Telkom and Neotel charge each other when their own customers call the competing Network. The rates are important to the Networks pricing decisions and deal offerings.

A quick definition "Asymmetry rates”: Asymmetry to ICASA refers to the price difference that small operators (like Cell C) can charge large operators (like Vodacom) for connecting to their network.

The proposed regulations not only look to lower the asymmetry rates but also re-look the qualification for asymmetry from market share to total terminated minutes.
