In a bid to improve network coverage and quality services, the mobile company, Cell C says it plans to put up 100 new sites around Johannesburg over the next 3 months.
“Traffic on our network has doubled over the past year and we’ve been hard at work rolling out new sites and installing additional capacity to cater for this growth and restore quality,” said Alan Knott-Craig, Cell C CEO.
“In particular, the network in Johannesburg and Pretoria has been taking strain. In addition to the new sites, we have also embarked on a project to optimise close to 900 existing sites in Johannesburg and Pretoria to improve coverage and minimise interference on the network in high-density areas. We expect these activities to be completed by the end of November 2013.”
This would bring the company’s total sites to 4340. The company also plans to put up 70 indoor coverage sites to a tune of ZAR200 million.
