Cell C drops Vodacom for roaming, inks new deal with MTN incl 4G access

Tuesday 29 May 2018 | 16:30 CET | News
South African operator Cell C announced it has entered into a far-reaching roaming agreement with MTN in order to complement Cell C's own mobile network. The agreement will see MTN providing both 3G and 4G services to Cell C in areas where Cell C has chosen to purchase coverage rather than self-build, mainly outside of the main metro areas. The operator said the introduction of 4G roaming will benefit customers significantly.
