How load-shedding kills mobile networks

Load-shedding has a devastating effect on mobile networks, with a big increase in site outages and dropped calls being reported when Eskom cuts the power.

Apart from the impact of batteries running down during stage 4 load-shedding, there is a big increase in theft and vandalism of base stations by criminals when load-shedding hits.
