Court ruling allows South Africas Telkom to continue network upgrade.

By bne IntelliNews March 19, 2013
South Africas fixed line operator Telkom can continue with the upgrade of its network after the countrys Supreme Court of Appeal ruled in favour of Telkom in a dispute with the company ZTE Mzansi, ITWeb reported. A year ago Telkom was banned from finalising a Multi Services Access Node (MSAN) procurement tender, which was awarded to Huawei and Alcatel-Lucent back in November 2011. The ban was imposed after the unsuccessful bidder ZTE Mzansi challenged the tender in court. Chinas ZTE owns a 40% stake of ZTE Mzansi.
