According to Phineas Moleele, ICASA's USAL project manager, the hearings finished on schedule and the general reaction of the communities was positive and enthusiastic.

The new licences will be on the same terms as previous USALs, says Phineas Moleele, USAL project manager with the Independent Communications Authority of SA (ICASA).
The licences would provide for a 25-year term with the expectation that it would be extended by ICASA for an additional 25 years.Services will include local voice services, fixed mobile, data services, emergency services, voice over Internet Protocol, public pay phone and operator-assisted services.
Moleele says seven licences were issued in December 2004.The 14 licences that will result from the December 2005 hearings, as well as the licence that would be issued following the February 2006 hearings, are still being finalised, he adds.
He notes that this round of applications leads to the final stage of the licensing process for USALs, so that 27 licences are issued as initially planned.
Applications should be addressed to the chairperson of ICASA and submitted by 28 April.Queries regarding the invitation should be submitted to Bambatha Hlongwane, USAL project manager, at usalsproject@doc.gov.za.
A non-refundable application fee of R30 000 is required at the time of filing an application.
Rural telecoms deliberations delayed

According to ICASA's USAL project manager, Phineas Moleele, the regulator has received the additional information it requested from the 14 bidders, following the public hearings conducted in February.
...
"The deliberations were due to begin on Tuesday, but one of our councillors suffered a family tragedy, so we halted the deliberation process out of respect to her," says Moleele.
ICASA, bidders at odds over USAL process

"The process is still on track and we are positive that the deliberations will take place as soon as is feasible," says Phineas Moleele, ICASA's USAL project manager.
"While we understand people's frustrations with the delays, we felt it was appropriate to give the councillor time, thus we have chosen to play it by ear for the moment."
He says the process has suffered from unforeseen delays - such as the councillor's tragedy - and the forthcoming spate of public holidays will not help the issue, but trying to rush the process would only have a negative effect.
However, one of the bidders - who did not wish to be named, for fear of prejudicing their bid before ICASA reaches a decision - says the bidders are "bleeding".In effect, he says, the consortiums involved are haemorrhaging money all the time the process drags on.
"It is ridiculous to have a situation like this in business, as it is an incredible drain on resources and we don't really seem to be getting anywhere," he says.
"The stakeholders who are really suffering here are the rural people involved in the consortiums, who have seen nothing for 30 months now, despite the commitment that government has given them."
While it seems that some of the bidders are unhappy, Moleele was upbeat about the situation.
