Spectrum Critical To South Africa LTE Expansion Plans

The lack of spectrum plays havoc with the future plans of mobile operators in SA, and may impact on the potential rollout of high speed mobile services.

Mobile operators MTN and Vodacom have been racing to build LTE (Long Term Evolution) networks that are aimed to deliver the next generation of mobile data access.

However, these plans are severely constrained by the failure of the regulator, Icasa (the Independent Communications Authority of South Africa) to award spectrum in the critical 800MHz band.
