MTN Launches Its Supersonic AirFibre Offering in South Africa

Finally, MTN has debuted its Supersonic AirFibre service in South Africa. The offering aims to put an end to the problem of distance and lack of infrastructure in urban, township, and rural areas. 

The latest innovation provides fibre-quality connectivity to more households and communities across the nation. 

”We are breaking down the traditional barriers that have denied many people the access to a modern and connected life,” said Calvin Collett, Managing Director of MTN SA’s ISP.

”From Soweto to Swellendam, we believe that every household deserves the speed and benefits of fibre-like connectivity. Hence, the launch of the Supersonic AirFibre service.”

The Supersonic AirFibre connectivity aims to deliver swift, inexpensive, and uncapped connectivity solutions to areas where traditional fibre installations are absent. 

The connectivity solution was built on unlicensed spectrum. And it’s being maintained by MTN’s technology team.

The telecommunication firm designed the service to deliver quality network – one that align with MTN’s standards – at affordable rates.

”Our Supersonic AirFibre offering is in line with our track record of optimizing frequency bands. In the past, we have undertaken this approach through the allocation of repurposed bands for 2G mobile services as well as new generation of mobile technology – including third and fourth generation technologies,” Collett added.

Speedy installation is one of the advantages of the AirFibre offering. It requires no trenching and subscribers of this service will enjoy access to new technology that matches a full-fibre installation.

The following are the launch costs of the Supersonic AirFibre service:

  • R399 for 5Mbps uncapped 
  • R499 for 10Mbps uncapped 
  • R599 for 20Mbps uncapped 
  • R799 for 50Mbps uncapped 
  • R999 for 100Mbps uncapped

The swift connectivity service will be available in areas where customers register their demand for the offering.
