- Telkom acting CEO Jeffrey Hedberg says the telecommunications group is implementing a five-year plan to refocus its energy on growing commercial returns.
Hedberg says he has had some time to define and refine Telkom’s strategy. The plan is to focus on what is commercially viable. This means pulling the plug on the wireless business of Multi-Links in Nigeria, which has been bleeding red ink all over Telkom’s income statement.
 
- Mobile number portability (MNP) in Kenya - which was originally scheduled to go live on 31 December – has been delayed until 1 April 2011.
