MTN disagrees with S.African regulator's recommendations on data costs

JOHANNESBURG, Dec 4 (Reuters) - South African telecoms group MTN said on Wednesday it disagreed with the analysis and recommendations of the Competition Commission after the regulator instructed MTN and rival Vodacom to lower data prices.

“As we study the full report, (we) will continue to engage constructively and vigorously defend against over-broad and intrusive recommendations,” it said in a statement.

The country’s competition watchdog said on Monday Vodacom and MTN could face prosecution if they do not agree to cut data prices in the next two months. (Reporting by Nqobile Dludla; Editing by Mark Potter)
