TELECOMMUNICATIONS & MEDIA
The telecommunications sector comprises a complex value chain that provides important inputs into businesses and supplies increasingly important services to consumers.
Our team has wide-ranging and in-depth experience in telecommunications and media from both a competition and a regulatory perspective. Our economists have been involved in key telecoms and media mergers including the Telkom/BCX merger (telecommunications), the Media24/Natal Witness merger (newspapers), the Primedia/NAIL merger (radio) and the Naspers/M-Net/Supersport merger (pay television). We have prepared submissions for ICASA and the Department of Communications and engaged in research on a range of topics including call termination, broadband, spectrum and numbering for Neotel as well as work on television for the National Association of Broadcasters.
