No service: Twitter fumes as Vodacom network appears to be down
Twitter users were sharing their frustrations on Friday morning as it appeared the Vodacom network was down.
A number of users complained about not being able to make or receive calls, though data services seemed unaffected:
Meanwhile downdetector and outage report, sites that track when services and websites are down, also reported that the network provider was having issues:
Vodacom has since tweeted that it was aware of the problem:
Vodacom is aware that certain customers in and around Johannesburg are unable to make calls. Our technicians are attending to the issue as a matter of urgency to restore normal service as soon as possible. Internet connectivity is unaffected. We apologise for the inconvenience.— Vodacom (@Vodacom) January 19, 2018
