Reportedly, leading infrastructure and communications technology provider, Huawei will be offering kits to Telkom for launching a high-speed 5G network in South Africa.
Following the 5G rollout, Telkom will become the third country to do so just after Vodacom and MTN.
Fortune Wang, Huawei South Africa carrier business director said, “The Covid pandemic has driven significant lifestyle changes for South Africans, due to work from home or school from home, online shopping, and an ‘always on’ kind of culture.”

For those who don’t know, Telkom is planning to acquire South Africa’s fourth-biggest operator Rain.
