The Independent Communications Authority (ICASA) invites representations on an application for the transfer of individual electronic communications service and individual electronic communications network service licences.

The invitation was published in Government Gazette 44093 in terms of the Electronic Communications Act.

Twin Peak Technologies cc has applied for the transfer of its Individual Electronic Communications Service licences to ABT Telecoms (Pty) Ltd.

According to the notice, the applications will be evaluated on the basis of certain criteria including promotion of competition in the ICT sector; interests of consumers and equity ownership by Historically Disadvantaged Persons.

The transfer application seeks approval from ICASA to transfer control of the I-ECNS licence from the current shareholder in Telemedia to the new shareholder in Telemedia.
