By: Mervin MiemoukandaSenior Research Analyst


This Market Note analyzes the South Africa Competition Commission's findings in a recent report that data tariffs are exorbitant in South Africa in comparison with those other countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. In addition, it assesses the potential impact related rulings will have on the market.

"Although mobile data prices in South Africa appear to be the most expensive in Sub-Saharan Africa, mobile operators in South Africa provide superior quality of service than their counterparts in the rest of Africa. Providing quality services requires continued investment in network rollouts and upgrades, as well as in customer service." — Senior Research Analyst Mervin Miemoukanda, IDC South Africa.
