Vodacom is the dominant mobile player in South Africa. The company has a market share of above 55% and also has the best network coverage in South Africa.
Vodacom offers affordable and fast-speed mobile broadband services, with 3G coverage of 96%. The mobile operator has the fastest growing Wi-Fi hotspot network in South Africa.
While fast 3G connectivity has changed the way that people use technology, with the fast changes in technology, it was only a matter of time before a better option came about.
What is LTE?
LTE, which is short for “Long Term Evolution,” is essentially wireless super-fast internet for your cell phones, tablets and notebooks. It has speed that’s up to three times faster than Vodacom 3G.
By using LTE, you get stutter-free video, breezy gaming and almost instant music and picture downloads. With LTE, you don’t have to waste time waiting for your video to finish buffering anymore, or worry about spending so much time on downloading music.
With download speeds of up to 60 Mbps, LTE is what is beyond Vodacom 3G.
To be able to use LTE, you have to have a 64K or 128K SIM card inside your LTE-capable smart device, which will then automatically connect to Vodacom’s LTE network when you’re within an LTE coverage area.
Making high quality voice calls using voLTE is possible, using the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
