Gotta hand it to Cell C – they know how to do marketing right. Vodacom has recently switched to a red colouring, as you might have noticed. Now how does Cell C and Trevor Noah take a bit of that attention? Watch the video below:
“It takes more than a lick of paint to be number SA’s number one network, dont you think?”
One problem though – there is a lot of chatter going on on Twitter about the much reduced speed of Cell C’s network these days. Just take a look at @louisvdm and @sarietha ‘s tweets to see what I am talking about. There has clearly been some congestion issues, especially in Stellenbosch – clearly the students have all switched to Cell C for internet.
Clearly the Cell C sticks have been selling well, but maybe too well for Cell C to handle? The pricing is still the best on the market, with not one single mobile network trying to compete. A few months ago I posted my speeds using Cell C over a period of time, but my performance has always been very good.
So in a bid to get some real life speeds from more Cell C “whoosh” users, please contribute to BandwidthBlog’s Speedwave for Cell C users. Its pretty easy, connect to the internet with your Cell C stick, and then do a Speedtest using the following link:
At present the results look OK, but we do want a representative sample. So lets see how everyone’s Cell C network is performing? Are you a happy customer or are you becoming a bit annoyed as well? Let us know in the comments.
