Thursday 21 December 2017 | 09:19 CET | News
MTN South Africa is gearing up for the festive rush by boosting network capacity in tourist hotspots, high traffic rural areas and along major freeways. Jacqui O'Sullivan, executive for corporate affairs, said the network optimisation programme includes new base stations and equipment upgrades at certain 3G and LTE stations, even in remote areas that have previously lacked connectivity. MTN will also keep track of large New Year's Eve events and where required, will add mobile base stations to reduce midnight congestion.
