The Independent Democrats (ID) says the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa (ICASA) has agreed that there is a need to look into high cellphone rates.
In a press statement after talks with ICASA, De Lille pointed out that the regulator will engage with cellphone operators in this regard.
De Lille said that the ICASA has also offered to cooperate with the Competition Commission in its investigation into possible collusion and anti-competitive behaviour by cellphone operators.
De Lille recently complained to the Competition Commission that South Africa has some of the highest cellphone call costs in the world and marginalised its low-income citizens in telecommunications as a result.
