The Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (Icasa) has issued draft amendments to the End-User and Subscriber Charter Regulations.
The amendment is aimed at helping mobile users avoid bill shock while roaming internationally.
Icasa’s draft regulations is available for public comment.
CapeTalk’s John Maytham spoke to Jan Vermeulen, Journalist at MyBroadband about Icasa’s intentions.
Vermeulen said that Icasa is not talking about regulating the roaming fees but that South African mobile operators should inform its subscribers about the roaming rates when they land in their destination countries.
He further said Icasa is also saying that operators should give subscribers an option to opt in and out of roaming.
