ICASA ordered to halt the implementation of new data expiry rules

11 Jun 2018

The high court in Johannesburg has ordered telecoms regulator ICASA to halt the implementation of the new consumer protection regulations dealing with data expiry and rollover, until judgment is handed down on the matter, TechCentral writes. Cell C challenged the South African regulator’s deadline for the implementation of new data expiry rules in an urgent application with the court last week, arguing that the deadline was too tight and it would take the operator at least six months to comply. Cell C was subsequently joined by MTN South Africa in its legal challenge, with Telkom and Vodacom also said to be considering lining up behind Cell C’s lawsuit.
