It’s not your imagination – your airtime and data are disappearing.
“There are a number of reasons why airtime and data might disappear,” says Jan Vermeulen, editor-at-large at MyBroadband.
“We’ve had cases where airtime and data disappeared and, upon our investigation, realised the operators didn’t even know it was happening.”
In MyBroadband’s most recent investigation, airtime was disappearing from Vodacom and Cell C SIMs.
For the experiment, everything was standardised – they used the same four Nokia phones with identical apps installed, connected to the same Wi-Fi router, etc.
