Vodacom SAfrica slams Competition Commission data price report

Tuesday 30 April 2019 | 11:20 CET | News
Vodacom South Africa has announced its intention to review the provisional data price report published by the Competition Commission. The mobile operator said that it will meet the 14 June deadline for making further submissions and comments on both the recommendations and findings in the provisional report. Vodacom will also use this round of consultations to provide accurate data, which does not seem to have been built into the provisional report, the operator said.
