We’ll present to the Competition Commission in a transparent way… We have nothing to hide.— Shameel Joosub, Vodacom
The Competition Commission is investigating Vodacom for “abuse of dominance”.
The company clinched an exclusive contract with National Treasury to be the provider of mobile telecommunication services to Government.
There are 20 Government departments bound by the new Vodacom contract, according to the Commission.
It says it has reasonable grounds to suspect the exclusive contracts may constitute exclusionary abuse of dominance by Vodacom.
The commission says it believes the contract will lead to a loss of market share for other network operators.
