A first for South Africa: LTE Roaming

What is LTE Roaming?

LTE is a wireless broadband technology that enables Data Roaming with high-speed connections faster than 3G while abroad.

LTE Roaming will ensure seamless video and music streaming, web surfing and email downloading.

It will automatically be available when you use data services on an LTE phone or device with a 64k or 128k SIM card. 

The active LTE networks are listed below and we’ll be adding more networks from around the world in the coming months.

LTE Roaming is available at no additional cost and standard roaming rates apply.
