MTN's 5G coverage tested

Real-world tests of MTN’s 5G network shows that the mobile operator has good coverage in large parts of Gauteng, Cape Town, and Stellenbosch.

For this research, MyBroadband analysed speed test data from the popular MyBroadband speed test app between 1 July 2021 and 30 September 2021.

This data used included crowdsourced speed tests and controlled drive tests done by MyBroadband’s internal testing team.

What's impressive about this? That MTN has coverage where they said they have coverage? I would expect that to be the very bare minimum of what they should deliver.

The tests may be impressive, but the coverage is not. Look at that map, most of Cape Town is missing coverage.

Why no speeds mentioned or did I miss something?

What do 5G routers go for these days, last I looked they sell for around R5k prepaid?
