This is one of the findings of MyBroadband’s Q1 2016 Smartphone and Tablet survey, which was conducted in January.

The survey was completed by 1,788 people, who were mostly IT professionals and other tech-savvy individuals with a strong knowledge of the South African telecoms market.

The survey also showed that 55% of respondents used mobile contracts to serve their mobile needs, with 28% on prepaid, 14% on top-up, and 4% on month-to-month services.
