Note on the ICASA Inquiry into the definition of Under Serviced Area (USA) in the Cell C licence
Due: 30 July 2008
This is an Inquiry in terms of section 4B of the ICASA Act which flows directly from the High Court ruling in favour of MTN in respect of the review proceedings which MTN brought against ICASA for approving certain roll out plans submitted by Cell C in respect of Community Service Telephones (CSTs).
The High Court on 26 February 2007 ruled that ICASA had not properly applied its mind to the matter and ordered it to consider it anew. Accordingly they have published this notice so that industry can assist them to determine whether Cell C has complied with its obligations under its licence.
