Submission + - South African Telecoms Laws Relax Ever-so-Slightly

MadLad writes: South Africa's infamously constrictive telecommunications laws have been relaxed to allow value-added network services to provide their own network infrastructure. This is an initial step towards competition and efficiency in an economy thusfar dominated and hamstrung by a state-owned telecoms monopoly, Telkom. (A few years ago it was calculated that it would be cheaper to fly to Hong Kong, download gigabytes at an internet cafe, and fly back to South Africa, than it would be to pay for an internet connection in South Africa and do the download from there.)
