1 Wholesale Retail Separation and e-Portal 13 November 2012 1

2 Background My Broadband September 2007 “If you phone the Telkom retail helpdesk you get an order number over the phone. For ADSL resell, you are supposed to get orders within 48 clock hours. This is so rare it is scary. MyBroadband can confirm that according to the Cybersmart system there are numerous orders pending which have been waiting for over 100 hours. “In some cases we have been waiting 500 hours just for an order number” Customer submit request to WCC / WSC WCC / WSC receive request, validate content, capture on tracking system and dispatch to Commercial Commercial receive request, process on CMSS and send order number back to WCC/WSC WCC / WSC compile customer feedback sheet and submit to customer Customer receive order number On average 5 day process to provide customer with order number 2

3 Situational Risk Breach of agreement (48 Hour processing time is a contractual obligation for WADSL) Anti-competitive complaints – Financial implications in the form of fines – Remedies to be implemented in short timelines Negative media – Reputational damage 3
