- According to South African e-lawyer Dominic Cull, an associate at legal firm Nicciferguson,(quoted in ItWeb) says section 40 of the Telecommunications Act was regarded as amended by the ministerial determination of 2 September 2004 (commonly called the Liberalisation Announcement) with regard to self-provisioning.

He says the licensing provisions and regulations have thrown the whole debate back to ICASA's original view this year that VANS should be allowed to self-provision.
