We will benefit from MTN and Cell C partnership – Vodacom

Vodacom is not concerned about the financial impact of Cell C starting to roam on MTN’s network and expects its network experience to improve as a result of this agreement.

MTN today announced that Cell C will soon be roaming on its network , with the initiation of a wholesale national roaming agreement with MTN.

Implementation of the agreement will begin next month, and the bulk of the services will be transferred within two months.
