Episode 17 of TalkCentral, TechCentral’s weekly podcast, is ready to go.
This week Duncan McLeod and Candice Jones talk about the decision by a Southern African Development Community task team to recommend the region rolls out the European standard for digital terrestrial television. We delve into the implications, and look at the spectrum that’s likely to be freed up for telecommunications services.
We then chat about Cell C’s new data bundle pricing, announced over the weekend, explore what’s happening at MTN — including the share sales and purchases of outgoing group CEO Phuthuma Nhleko — and look at Siphiwe Nyanda‘s new job. Could the former communications minister have his eye on higher political office?
Also in this week’s show, we look at Vox Telecom‘s new satellite broadband project, talk about Blue Label Telecoms and its plans to sue Telkom over the termination of a contract at Nigeria’s Multi-Links, and wonder whether DStv Mobile is worth getting.
