Shuttleworth lashes SA over telecoms ‘failure’

Technology billionaire Mark Shuttleworth has slammed government’s failure to fix problems at the Independent Communications Authority of SA (Icasa), warning ongoing capacity problems at the regulator are hampering economic growth. Shuttleworth, speaking to TechCentral following Icasa’s decision last week to postpone an auction of valuable radio frequency spectrum, says there is no “clear prioritisation of telecommunications as a vital source of growth in the SA economy”.
