German mobile performance testing firm P3 Communications has named Vodacom’s mobile network the “Best in Test”, based on its latest results.
Vodacom received the award following the release of P3’s results from test conducted between 11 November and 12 December 2016.
P3 travelled to South Africa’s biggest cities, towns, and roads to assess the network performance of the country’s network operators.
It ranked local mobile networks using voice and data performance metrics, with Vodacom placing first in all six categories.
“We are delighted that the consistent investment in our network in South Africa continues to pay off,” said Andries Delport, CTO for Vodacom Group.
“Including the current financial year, we will have invested R27.4 billion in our network in South Africa over a three-year period.”
