In fact it is the mobile service providers crippling access to information in general as mobile ecok prices have not kept up with the times and consumption rates.

The reality is really that in SA you can only target a customer base of around 20m people and those are already connected to mobile broadband via their phones. If you’re doing a big order that qualifies for free shipping, then the few bucks you might spend on mobile data probably isn’t ecm issue. Most consumers without adxl access would shop via their work internet and from our own stats there are very few companies blocking internet access to e-commerce.
The bigger issue is that the lack of infrastructure makes it very difficult to deliver products to non-metropolitan areas. Joined Mar 8, Messages 1, This is complete BS.

Naspers will soon own a majority stake in Takealot and last time I checked, has pretty much a monopoly over digital content in this country. A fast internet connection would have not helped “the success” of e-commerce. Rinkhals Well-Known Member May 11, I think the biggest barrier for eCommerce in South Africa is a weak post office.

The fcom people I know have no problem at pulling up stupid facebook videos on mobile data – they might moan about data prices, but I don’t think it’s a barrier to transacting. Joined Apr 4, Messages 13, Forums New posts Search forums.

Because nobody in the ANC understood the importance of the Web to the economy, the Communications portfolio was regarded as a very minor ministry and people like Dinah Pule were free to ecomm themselves and their partners rather than looking at how best to position ourselves to take advantage of ecommerce.

I believe that a succession of incompetent ministers from Ivy Casaburri through Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, Dinah Pule et al who were appointed as Minister of Communications not for their ability to understand eecom portfolio but for the need eom give loyal supporters within the ANC a post as a reward.
