Vodacom South Africa says it will deploy additional base station sites and Wi-Fi hotspot capacity to power up its sponsored horse racing event, the Durban July. The operator said that the Durban July is strongly associated with fashion, meaning that the event attracts media attention as local celebrities and fashion lovers flock to the event, using every opportunity to take and share images on social media. Steven Barnwell, Managing Executive for Vodacom KwaZulu, said they have deployed five Wi-Fi hotspots and ten in-field base stations, for 2G, 3G and LTE.
