The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has gazetted amendments to a section in the March 2022 broadband regulations prescribing pro-competitive terms and conditions.

Immediately effective, the amendments require operators with significant market power to publish on their websites ‘non-confidential versions’ of certain documents, records and accounts deemed confidential in terms of section 4D of the ICASA Act, 2000.

In addition:

  • sub-regulations 7(d) (dealing with access point names and mobile virtual network operators) and (g) (wholesale and retail price monitoring) have been deleted, while
  • substitute sub-regulations 7(h)(iii) and 7(h)(v) have changed certain aspects of reporting on requests for wholesale site infrastructure access.
