New Spectrum Licensing Policy and Creation of a Wholesale Open Access Network in South Africa

By: Mervin MiemoukandaSenior Research Analyst


This IDC Market Note discusses South Africa's new policy regarding spectrum licensing and the creation of a WOAN in the country. This new policy was established by the South African communications minister and will be enforced by ICASA. The note also assesses the likely impact of this regulatory change on the telecoms industry in South Africa.

"The creation of a WOAN will likely have serious repercussions for the South African telecom industry if the government does not carry out comprehensive consultations with all stakeholders. The government should learn from the mistakes made by other countries that have implemented such a model." — Senior Research Analyst Mervin Miemoukanda, IDC South Africa.
