Cell signals during load shedding


Guest : Jan Vermeulen

The country's largest mobile phone operators say although their reception towers have
been able to withstand power outages, connectivity could be compromised if load
shedding exceeded the capacity of backup batteries.
MTN said its batteries generally had a capacity of 6-12 hours and required 12-18 hours
to recharge, depending on the battery technology type.
Vodacom stated that load shedding might lead to "intermittent issues with your signal"
but the downtime should "pass as soon as power is restored".
