Well that question 5G is great and all but I’m more interested in loadshedding availability and day to day 5G in my phone isn’t that important as long as there is good 4G signal
How?? How? I want to cry

My Mtn Data is terrible, horrible it’s literally rubbish all the time. Half the time I can’t WhatsApp, send emails or anything.

I can have full signal with 5G and nothing works. Safari times out. This is at least 50% of the time.

Then I get in my car and its hotspot comes on powered by a RAIN sim and everything works 101%…

I can load pages faster and get better reliability when I’m roaming in Mozambique on low data mode and only a 3G connection.
