Independent economist, Luke Muller, says the proliferation of cellphone usage in South Africa happened in a short space of time and companies should be left to adjust to this rapid change.

Muller speaks to the fact that many people were complaining about the cost of data in South Africa compared to other countries.

He says the country has made certain improvements when it comes to data costs.
