Neotel, South Africa's second national operator (SNO), has slashed the cost of calls to mobile phones by 23% in an effort to improve its market share. The lower rates – which were prompted by the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa’s (ICASA’s) ruling on termination fees last year – came into effect on 1 March. Neotel's Dr Angus Hay commented: 'Neotel continues to offer the most cost effective home phone service for consumers. For as little as ZAR99 (USD14.4) per month rental, you can get a wireless phone - no copper wires, no waiting for installation - and these new rates make it even more compelling.
