Why is Telkom so anti everything?

I just read an article in the latest iWeek on the issues that the roll out of broadband in Cape Town is encountering.  Here is a link to the article. (You need to be a subscriber, which is free, to read the article).

Basically it is about Telkom that is objecting to the awarding of the contract by the Cape Town municipality to a consortium consisting of MTN and Cornastone. The reasons Telkom gives is so childish ie – (1) that some old law is still in existence and only they are allowed to provide connectivity and (2) they were not informed that they did not make the shortlist.

As Mike Brierley from MTN says

.. the matter illustrates Telkom’s bullying tactics ..

Come on Telkom, grow up.
