Description

Altech – The Battle for Self-provision (Part B): Abstract

Altech – The Battle for Self-provision (Part B) is a case study by Gillian Marcelle, Rita Sikhondze and Stephanie Townsend.

Altech was already well on its new strategic path when a series of events in 2004 forced it to take a legal stand against the South African government – more specifically, the Department of Communications (DoC). On 3 September 2004, the previous minister of communications, Dr Ivy Matsepe-Casaburri, published a determination as per the Telecommunications Act, which stated that: “VANS [value-added networks] might self-provide facilities from 1 February 2005.” Backed by this, ICASA released its own statement, adding that “self-provision contemplates the procurement of telecommunication facilities by a VANS licensee from any telecommunication facility supplier and to use them under and in accordance with its licence to provide telecommunications services”.
