It appears the dispute over the implementation new data regulations could head to court, reports MyBroadband's Jan Vermeulen.
MyBroadband has reported that communications regulator has not met with mobile networks to discuss a possible out-of-court settlement.
Cell C and the other parties approached Icasa asking for an extension of the date of implementation of the new data regulations.
The regulations, which forced service providers to ensure consumers don't lose unused data, were meant to come into effect from June.
The new mobile data rules also required networks to offer the ability to roll over unused data.
It looks like the process is heading to court.— Jan Vermeulen, Technology Editor at MyBroadband
Icasa says it's going to defend its position.— Jan Vermeulen, Technology Editor at MyBroadband
