Bold network claims’ disclaimers
On various marketing communication and customer touchpoints, we make confident use of bold claims about our network statistics and performance. To show that our claims are substantiated with real facts and figures, here’s a list of claims and the independent research which supports them:
1. The reference to Vodacom as “SA’s Best Network” is based on the latest MyBroadband data published on 13 June 2017: “The May 2017 MyBroadband Speed Test App results reveal that Vodacom has the highest average download speed in South Africa, followed by MTN, Cell C, and Telkom.” which proves that Vodacom offers the fastest mobile Internet data speed in South Africa.
2. The statement “with the least dropped calls” is verified by independent research. Terms and conditions apply.
3. The reference to “99% Internet coverage” is used because the Vodacom network infrastructure covers more than 99% of the
South African population with mobile data services; 2G, 3G, and LTE.
4. The claim “fastest Internet speed” is based on the latest MyBroadband data which confirms that the Vodacom network in
South Africa offered the fastest mobile Internet data (LTE) speed in South Africa.
