(Telecompaper) South Africa’s Competition Commission has released its final report on data prices, showing that consumers are paying more than they should for access to the internet. The Commission called the high price of data “anti-poor” and noted that networks such as MTN and Vodacom offer lower prices in other African countries where they operate. To combat these issues, the Commission said that all networks should offer prepaid subscribers a ‘lifeline package’ of daily free data to ensure all citizens have data access on a continual basis, regardless of income levels.
