Vodafone using SA as a testing ground?

Posted on: June 22, 2006

I see over on The Register that Vodafone UK are only now starting to publicly over the HSDPA data cards offered over here via Vodacom partnership for a couple months already.

Interesting, does this mean that SA could be seen as a valuable testing ground for such new technologies by the international telecoms players?

“the reason they messed around with it here first is that it is very dependent on the ammount of usage.
It was still risky at that stage.
Its easier to reboot – and make excuses for crashing a small african network than it is a European”

(quoting my friend Gabi, who’s starting a telecoms blog on monday)
