1 Sep TalkCentral: Ep 189 - 'Vumatel's township game changer'
There's one story dominating the podcast this week: TechCentral's exclusive story about Vumatel's plan to offer uncapped 100Mbit/s fibre to township residents for R89/month, starting in Alexandra in Johannesburg. If Vumatel gets it right - and its models show it's likely to work - the audacious plan could transform township economies in South Africa. Duncan McLeod and Regardt van der Berg talk in detail about the plan, with fresh insights from TechCentral's Friday interview with Vumatel CEO Niel Schoeman. Also this week, Vodacom's weird free data offers and communications regulator Icasa versus Cell C. Duncan's pick this week is Ada for iOS and Android, while Regardt has chosen custom Lego mini figures from mini-me.co.za. Listen to the podcast to find out who the team has chosen as winner and loser of the week.
