Yes man, only this remains. I wanted 79 points and we have to fight more now.“I talk to my players, ‘come on, now is the right moment to push’. I always believe, I am a positive man. If Tottenham go above us, congratulations, but I prefer to be five points ahead.“We are in the Champions League, dilly ding, dilly dong – come on. We are in the Champions League, it is fantastic, terrific. Well done to everybody.”Ranieri will be without Jamie Vardy after the striker accepted a Football Association charge of improper conduct following his reaction to referee Jon Moss after he was sent off in last weekend’s 2-2 draw with West Ham.But Ranieri wants to move on from the incident, even though 22-goal Vardy could be hit by a further ban when a hearing is held next week.He added: “We know he has one match off and our preparation is without him.

Telecos to amend customer contracts

first_img19 July 2011South Africa’s four big mobile phone operators and two landline providers will have to have new customer contracts that are compliant with the Consumer Protection Act in place within three months, according to Business Report on Monday.This came as national consumer commissioner Mamodupi Mohlala prepared to sign consent order agreements this week with each of the companies. These agreements are legally binding and a fine of R1-million or 10% of annual turnover could be imposed if they were breached.Mohlala said that over the past two weeks the commission had reviewed all contracts provided by the individual companies and that none of the contracts were compliant with the Act. This, despite the fact that it had been in the pipeline for the past five years and its implementation was postponed from September last year to April this year.She said that in most cases about 75% of the cellphone contract terms and conditions would have to change.Companies would have to change their billing systems, marketing approach and their staff would have to be educated and more skilled, which would require more spending on human resources, she said.“There is nothing untoward … we are aligning South Africa with international best practice.”Mohlala said Cell C, Telkom and 8.ta would have their contracts amended by the end of September, Neotel by next month and MTN and Vodacom both expected to have amended their contracts by the end of October.Sapalast_img read more
