Cell C’s New CEO Urges Icasa to Maintain Favorable Wholesale Rates for Competitive Edge
Jorges Mendes, recently appointed as the CEO of Cell C, has urged the communications regulator Icasa to uphold the current favorable wholesale call rates that benefit Cell C. Mendes emphasized the importance of maintaining these rates, which provide Cell C with a competitive edge against larger competitors like Vodacom and MTN.
Cell C, having transitioned away from operating its own radio access network, relies on the asymmetry in wholesale mobile call termination rates (MTRs) to connect subscribers to cellphone towers. Mendes highlighted the significance of continuing this arrangement for at least the next five years.
Addressing past mistakes, Mendes acknowledged Cell C’s errors, particularly a decision to raise call termination rates during its launch. He refuted claims that high termination rates were beneficial in the company’s early days, emphasizing that Cell C was a net payer to its competitors, hindering its market establishment.
Mendes urged Icasa to maintain the current structure, with asymmetry allowing smaller players favorable MTR treatment. He emphasized that the wider the gap between smaller operators and larger players, the better it is for Cell C’s competitiveness.
The plea underscores the ongoing complexities in the telecommunications industry, balancing market dynamics for fair competition.
