Finally, MTN South Africa will launch and activate it’s 5G network on June 30, 2020. This launch will make MTN the first of the 22-telecommunications group operating in South Africa to introduce the next-generation broadband technology. 

On the same day, the telecom giant will be launching its 5G network; it will also be hosting a live event on its YouTube channel. The event will be hosted by the CEO, Godfrey Mosta alongside Giovanni Chiarelli, Chief consumer, information, and technology officer, Mapula Bodibe.

Earlier this month, MTN made an announcement concerning the launch of its 5G network in some of the major cities across South Africa. Initially, MTN had plans to launch its 5G network at the start of June, but according to reports, the company experienced delays in bringing some of the required equipment into the country.

Undoubtedly, the nationwide lockdown measures put in place led to the delay issues MTN faced with the delivery of the necessary equipment.

MTN also confirmed that it would be using the emergency spectrum allocated by the South African government to provide 5G services. However, mobile network operators will have access to the emergency spectrum until November.
