Vodacom South Africa zero rates what3words website

Thursday 28 May 2020 | 16:04 CET | News
Vodacom South Africa has zero-rated lifesaving technology what3words for its more than 43 million subscribers across the country. In an emergency, a what3words address can be given to the call handler to identify precisely where help is needed. The free what3words app works offline, but when a caller does not have the app, emergency services can text a link to the what3words emergency find me website which tells them the what3words address for the location.
