On April 2, 2014, Vodacom Group Limited (JSE:VOD) stated that it was still in discussions to acquire Neotel (Pty) Ltd from Tata Communications Limited (BSE:500483). It denied a report in the Economic Times that the deal valued about $590 million could disintegrate as the South African regulator was contemplating whether or not to allow the transfer of Neotel's spectrum to Vodacom.
