The Competition Commission has finally woken up to the fact the consumers in SA are being financially raped by the sole fixed-line operator, Telkom.

The case is set to be heard by the Pretoria high Court on the 24th of this month, but it seems that Telkom has its argument ready. An act passed in 2005 called the Electronics Communication Act, section 36 makes it very clear that the only body allowed to question Telkom is Icasa, therefore making the Competition Commissions regulations irrelevant to Telkom.

Let's just hope that the Competition Act. renders Icasa's regulation as useless as what Icasa actually is.

Now, remember, Icasa is the same bunch of idiots that canned the WiMax testing in SA by canceling MWEB's WiMax licenses. Great stuff Icasa, we will forever be screwed over by the monopoly that Telkom has in SA and will forever be stuck in the dark days of 1MBps ADSL connections costing as much as a car repayment.

We love you and we can't thank you enough!
