South African mobile service provider Cell C passed a complaint with the Competition Commission against mobile operators, MTN and Vodacom, for anti-competitive conduct.

The complaint was directed to the manner in which the mobile operators discriminate between their on-net and off-net effective prices, which has a direct impact on smaller operators’ ability to acquire new customers.

“The two dominant incumbents discount their effective on-net prices substantially while charging a premium for their customers to call off-net. This amounts to discriminatory pricing and is without doubt anti-competitive when adopted by dominant operators,” says Cell C CEO Alan Knott-Craig.

Cell C has been intensely competing on all fronts with the ultimate aim of driving down prices for the consumer, which is also beneficial for Cell C.

“Customers that call off-net are being penalized often without them realizing it. With number portability, customers don’t always know if they are calling on- or off-net anymore, so they don’t actually know what rate they are paying,” says Knott-Craig.
