SPTC backs down on mobile
SWAZILAND| March 23, 2012, 10:03 a.m.
The Swaziland Posts and Telecommunications Corporation (SPTC) reportedly offered to withdraw its mobile service from the market as its dispute over the matter enters arbitration in Geneva.
SPTC signed a joint venture agreement with MTN Swaziland in 1997, in which SPTC agreed not to launch mobile services.
However, its fixed-mobile offering is in contravention of this agreement, says MTN.
The matter is now being heard in the International Court of Arbitration in Geneva.
