As mobile broadband becomes more and more popular network providers battle it out to see who can outsmart the competitors and get the edge. Both MTN and Vodacom recently launched their new HSDPA service offering users the ability to access the net at 3.6 Mbps.
MTN thought they had the lead when they where the first to announced that their 3.6 Mbps service was available in the major metro area’s, however Vodacom surprised everyone by announcing a few days later that their 3.6 Mbps connection has launched and is available nation wide, this led to them quickly becoming the obvious leaders in this field. MTN followed up by announcing that their new 7.2 Mbps connection was now also available in selected metro’s.
The question is who is going to win the race. Vodacom with the clear lead when it comes to nationwide coverage and user volumes or MTN with the lead in faster access. Only time will tell.
fringsters it’s going to be very interesting to watch as this battle unfolds over the next few months, don’t miss the action.
