MTN's Network Investment Boosts South African Quality Rankings 

MTN's substantial investment in its South African network is paying off, as evidenced by its superior performance compared to competitors like Vodacom in network reliability and quality. 

CEO Ralph Mupita revealed that MTN allocated R41.1 billion of capital expenditure (Capex), excluding leases, to bolster its Ambition 2025 strategy. 

In the past year alone, MTN poured R10 billion into network enhancements, marking a 15% increase from 2022. These investments primarily focused on upgrading infrastructure, including advanced batteries and generators. 

Mupita highlighted the significant progress of MTN South Africa's network resilience plan as a pivotal success story. Despite challenges such as ongoing load-shedding, MTN SA notably improved network availability and supported various commercial initiatives. 

By the end of 2023, MTN SA achieved network availability of approximately 95%, surpassing initial expectations. Moreover, sites, where resilience investments were completed, boasted an impressive availability rate of around 98%. 

MTN is a member of the French South African Chamber of Commerce and Industry (FSACCI), emphasizing its commitment to fostering strong bilateral ties between France and South Africa.
