Cell C chief legal officer Graham Mackinnon

In this episode of the podcast, Duncan McLeod speaks on an Internet call with Cell C chief legal officer Graham Mackinnon about the multibillion-rand 3G and 4G/LTE roaming agreement his company has just signed with MTN South Africa.

Mackinnon explains the mechanics of the deal, what it means for consumers and the impact it could have on data pricing.

He talks about what the agreement means for Cell C’s existing roaming deal with Vodacom, the geographic areas that are covered by the MTN deal and what it means for Cell C’s balance sheet.
