Vodacom aiming for top network quality with major investment

Vodacom’s latest trading update revealed it spent R2.7 billion on its network over the last three months, which sends a signal to MTN that it is gunning for the top spot in network quality.

Network quality is closely related to how much money an operator spends on its network, referred to as capital expenditure (Capex) in financial reports.

It costs billions to roll out new sites and deploy the latest mobile network technologies – like 5G, 4×4 MIMO, 3CC (3 Carrier Combining), and 256QAM – on existing sites.
