WiMAX operator Screamer raided in spectrum usage controversy

Screamer Telecoms offices in South Africa were reportedly raided by the communications authorities this weekend

South African WiMAX provider Screamer Telecoms has had its offices raided and equipment confiscated by state communications regulator ICASA. The raid, which took place over the weekend, reportedly saw the seizure of WiMAX equipment from a number of the carrier’s sites, as well as a raid on the company’s offices in Centurion, Pretoria. ICASA said that the necessary police warrants had been used during the seizures. Screamer CEO Gavin Hart has, however, denied that any such raid took place and that the company is operating as usual.
