    MTN is crazy to give up their network to 3rd parties without taking an ownership stake in the service. They are missing out on a billion dollar company down the road.

    Telecoms have a great opportunity to be the dominant TV distributors in Africa as all video moves online, but instead they are spending all the money on infrastructure and allowing others to make the money off it.

    This has already happened with Facebook and amazingly MTN is allowing it to happen again with video.
