MTN warned on Monday that it was experiencing “intermittent connection issues” that were affecting the services of approximately a million voice, SMS and data users throughout South Africa.
“Our engineers are working on resolving all services. MTN will advise on when these connection issues have been resolved,” the company said in a statement issued shortly after 4pm on Monday.
Earlier on Monday, the operator tweeted: “We are currently experiencing intermittent connection issues affecting some customers.”
Users have taken to Twitter and other social media to complain about the network issues, which appear to have started as early as Sunday afternoon.
MTN did not say what was causing the problem.
“MTN sincerely apologises to its customers for any inconvenience caused.” — (c) 2016 NewsCentral Media
