@MTNza So far 4 hours of unreliable network today! MTN just as bad as Eskom! Is MTN also Wifi-shedding?! What am I paying for? #MTN

Trying to meet a work deadline this morning but @MTNza via @Afrihost on my 4G Router is just about as stable as my last ex.
Seems #MTN is down Everywhere.
Until now I saw no need to switch to Fibre, but now I have a strong inclination.

It’s not the first time that MTN users have complained of network issues.

In October, users struggled after the MTN data network was down for at least three hours while in August, users in the Western Cape and Free State were off-line for around nine hours.
