MTN: Fastest, Irresistible, Best Voted Network in South Africa
A world without connectivity is unimaginable and unrealistic in the present day. Our daily life tasks, networking, and entertainment revolve around the internet and telecommunication services. Therefore, staying connected with the world is a basic necessity to explore better opportunities.
Did you know?
South Africa has over 12 million internet users, representing around 34% of the total population. Telecommunication in South Africa, such as internet, television, and phone services, are at an excellent standard in urban areas and are entering the market boom.
Recently, there has been an increase in the number of telecommunication service providers in South Africa. Yet, at the same time, MTN surpassed them all in service, customer satisfaction, and efficiency.
Last year, MTN spent R3.2 billion (USD 212.9 million) on network upgrades in the first half of 2021. As a result, it paid dividends in customer satisfaction, as MTN was voted South Africa’s best network provider in the fourth quarter.
MTN’s inspiring success story
MTN has worked hard to strengthen our infrastructure to benefit our customers with full coverage, quality, and speed that are premium in South Africa.
In 2021, MTN won the award of South Africa’s best network provider, which was declared to us by an independent provider, MyBroadband. On a scale of 10, we surpassed our contenders by achieving a network quality score of 9.50, far above our competitors.
MTN has been consistent in its growth and services as we outperformed our competitors at the end of 2020 with a Network Quality Score of 9.86. Moreover, MTN is well on track to replicate this performance in 2022.
Opensignal’s latest South Africa Mobile Network Experience Report shows that MTN provides the fastest download speed, averaging 27.6 Mb/s. This download speed is 20.7% faster than our second-placed competitor.
MTN also delivered the fastest upload speed with a score of 7.9 Mb/s. Our exceptional performance results from the care, time, and money we have invested in our infrastructure over the past five years.
MTN’s future vision
MTN is taking significant steps in boosting our coverage in rural and peri-urban areas. Through this rural rollout, we aim to have over 100 rural deployments nationally by the end of 2022.
Our visionaries are committed to a broad approach to driving digital and financial inclusion by accelerating broadband connectivity and working to boost the economic recovery of South Africa.
MTN’s expansion drive will improve coverage and aims to maintain and exceed quality expectations, building on the recent recognition we received for our network performance.
MTN is also expanding its reach in the 5G domain; it now has 900 5G sites with plans to scale up in the future. MTN is also looking forward to stepping up in the FinTech business, which launched in February 2020, scaling to 3.4 million registered users.
These are enough reasons to stay connected with MTN for better services and superfast network connectivity. If you are looking to sign up with South Africa’s best-voted network, contact us today.
