South African Networks Discuss Infrastructure Sharing Deal

Published on:

South Africa's MTN is again reported to be in talks with the dominant landline operator Telkom over network sharing between their mobile networks.

Telkom owns a smallish mobile network, which it has been also rumoured to be looking at selling.

A network infrastructure sharing deal would however cut Telkom's operating costs and enable it to keep the mobile unit until it has built a viable customer base. The company currently has 1.6 million mobile subscribers.

Telkom has previously said it is holding talks -- but did not elaborate on what the talks were about, or with whom.
