Monday 9 June 2014 | 11:28 CET | News
Swazi MTN and the Swaziland Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (SPTC) are reportedly in talks to resolve their conflict, The Times reported. The dispute concerns the joint venture agreement they signed when MTN started operations in the country. The agreement prevented SPTC from operating a mobile telephone network. Despite a fine and court ruling telling it to switch off the service, SPTC has again launched mobile products. MTN went to court again to force the shutdown of the mobile telephony network on 29 January.
