What Ellipsis failed to note is that Icasa can't fine or imprison anyone, only the courts can do this. The courts nor the SAPS can prosecute anyone, only the NPA can do this and NPA isn't going to do it, hence all these rules and legislation can be ignored where it limits our freedoms to do with copper and glass whatever we want in this our country South-Africa. The legislation is for good where service providers can force that lee ways be provided to them , see http://www.dfafrica.co.za/press/2014/2014-10-01 . Where the legislation is to protect the monopolies of telco's, the NPA will protect us by ignoring Icasa.
SANRAL is a classic example of how the NPA protects the public, SANRAL is powerless to enforce toll payments because SANRAL cannot prosecute anybody and the NPA isn't going to prosecute anybody for non-payment because our court system will come to a standstill. Murder cases for example will only be prosecuted after a 100 years as the courts are forced to hear thousands of e-toll cases. And this is also one reason why the Constitutional court will never review the case where gun owners under the old licensing system must relicense, it is unfeasible to criminalize the majority of SA tax base.
