IC also released a document called,
“Proposed Revisions to the Frameworks for Mandatory Roaming and Antenna Tower and Site Sharing”
More information to digest to evaluate the competitive framework.
So far, one of the new entrants from the previous round, Mobilicity, has come out in favour of the new rules and the other has claimed that it doesn’t provide enough capacity for new entrants to build out their networks.
Please note also that there are no rural set asides as such.

This has been corrected in caps in yesterdays posting.
