Telkom SA Ltd is presently South Africa’s sole fixed-line telecommunications operator. In May 1997 the South African Government sold a 30% stake in Telkom to SBC Communications and Telekom Malaysia for R5,54 billion.
The telecommunications utility was granted a five-year exclusivity period during which no competition would be allowed on fixed-line telephony. In return Telkom and its equity partners have agreed to deliver 2,8-million new lines and meet service, quality and upgrading targets.
Telkom SA Ltd owns 50% of Vodacom Group (Pty) Ltd.
