They are doing a migration, do you not watch, read or listen to news?

Same problem - i left vodacom a few years ago because of poor reception in my area; now I find myself forced back to them. It's been 2 weeks now and Cell C don't seem to care, dozens of phone calls, multiple 'escalations' and nothing. Surely it's a breach of contract to force someone onto another network without agreement or even warning?

Maybe move away from the caves if you cant get network where you currently live.

Lol, cellc worked fine in the “caves”

Vodacom has some serious dead spots on the east rand

So i switched to Vodacom network as advised by CellC consultant and yah the network is horrible.

Every now and then internet connectivity drops
I hope such issues will be resolved.

I have fiber and no load shedding, civilised enough for me,

Going to see if I can port my number to Telkom , seems they have decent cover where I stay

I was previously getting download speeds of around 12mbps on Cell C. Now...... 0.08

I agree. Cell C has regressed to pre dial up days. See speed test screen shot. Screenshot_20210209_201411_eu.vspeed.mybroadband.jpg

Looks like you got moved to emptyM, judging by the edge logo

Try doing a manual network select for Vodacom, if you manage to get signal, it should be faster

If you look at the cell c twitter page, it's full of complaints like this - how come the news media isn't covering this - mybroadband should do an article on this? It's very newsworthy! What's the legality of this i wonder ?

@rpm could you perhaps get one of your news writers to look into this?
