Telkom line(')s down
The number of Telkom fixed line telephone connections has declined yet again, down more that 100 000 year-on-year since September 2005, according to a MyADSL article. Since Telkom is still (effectively) the monopoly provider, regular readers of this blog (and many others) will not be suprised. SA's teledensity seems set to remain, resolutely, below 10% and the government's target of 5% broadband penetration looks like pure fantasy.
