MEDIA RELEASE


 COMPETITION FOR TELKOM

MEDIA STATEMENT ISSUED BY CEDRIC FROLICK, MP

The UDM welcomes the introduction of competition in the telecommunications industry. The departure from granting exclusive contracts to parastatals, such as Telkom, is a step in the right direction and will stimulate competition in the industry.
 
The opportunity now exists for emerging entrepreneurs and small/medium enterprises to access this lucrative market, which could stimulate job creation and economic growth.
 
The Public also stand to benefit from the competition between new entrants in the industry and Telkom, with higher customer satisfaction levels, improved service delivery and more competitive pricing.
