When you can expect 5G from Vodacom and MTN, This is a write up on MY Broadband...
Cricky what a joke, MTN can't even get their towers working during Load shedding for 3G and 4G, how are they going to manage 5G and this means more power needed for the towers for the 5G upgrades.
Load shedding is here to stay due to brilliant work from Eskom, so the service providers should get their act together and give the services everybody is paying for.

Don't. MTN is slowly busy shutting down towers because the batteries keep being stolen. Or so I think I read somewhere, unless I got the wrong end of the stick.

I expected that, but what about their clients who need the connection
It cost them 100 millions to try to stop the theft, nevermind to keep on replacing stolen goods. Maybe losing clients doesn't cost that much?

honestly if they went and activated Vowifi it would negate this issue at least for those of us that have fibre access with a power back up

Sadness. the state of our country.

People stealing your backup power for your Internet. When you want to surf the internet while being loadshed. Boom... no internet even while being loadshed.

When your only entertainment is looking at a candle... or LED lamp i guess.

They probably make too much out of international roaming for them to enable VoWi-Fi.
