I’ve been in Europe for about 3 weeks or so, and i thought that amongst all of the culture, history and exciting adventures, i would *at the very least* have excellent cellphone/data coverage to match. This is the “1st World” after all! I will say, that Ireland has the most amazing coverage and deals i have ever experienced in my life – but England, Belgium and the Netherlands leave a lot to be desired. Coverage is spotty, calls take forever to connect (even when you’re calling local numbers), and data is pretty damn expensive too. It honestly made me rethink our offering in South Africa.
I read some pretty interesting information recently about who is considered South Africa’s “Best Network”, and the answer doesn’t surprise me in the least – Vodacom. You might be wondering how this is judged… there are a few specific categories where the best performing network can be objectively selected, and Vodacom consistently came out on top.
Here are some of the categories where Vodacom took first prize:
South Africa’s Fastest Mobile Network
South Africa’ s Best Mobile Internet Experience
South Africa’s Best Mobile Network for video downloads
South Africa’s Biggest Network with the most towers
100% Internet Coverage on all SA’s freeways
Network with fewest dropped calls
I realize that we still have a long way to go in terms of a lot of things in South Africa, mobile included, but Vodacom has embarked on a mission to “change the game” locally. This means that, in the long run, Vodacom is trying to forge the way forward when it comes to mobile networks! I feel like their new Change The Game campaign means that they’re committed to offering the best across a multitude of elements.
Let’s raise a glass to the best South African network – Vodacom!
