A court has up­held the government’s de­ci­sion to block a ten­der for R12 bil­lion of high-speed mo­bile broad­band li­cences is­sued by the tele­coms reg­u­la­tor.

The In­de­pen­dent Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Author­ity of South Africa (Icasa) took the in­dus­try by sur­prise in July when it opened a ten­der to in­ter­ested tele­coms firms to bid for broad­band li­cences known as spec­trum.
