South Africa: Vodacom criticizes Competition Commission data price report

 |  April 29, 2019

Vodacom has announced its intention to review the provisional data price report published by the Competition Commission.

The mobile operator stated that it will meet the June 14 deadline for making further submissions and comments on both the recommendations and findings in the provisional report.

“Vodacom will also use this round of consultations to provide accurate data, which does not seem to have been built into the provisional report,” the company stated.

The company claimed that the data used by the report was out of date, as it was based on data prices from 2016 and 2017, which affected the conclusions drawn from it.

“The information used is outdated and doesn’t take into account hourly, daily, weekly and fortnightly bundles, which is 80% of our volume sales in pre-paid offerings,” Vodacom stated.
