Reason Seeks A New Network

Reason Seeks A New Network

Feb 05, 2019, 05:43 PM

South African rapper, Reason, is doing something that most South Africans have done at least once in their lives: switching mobile networks. And best of all is he wants your help in doing it.

But let's back track a little - why does Reason want to switch providers in the first place? To understand this you need to have followed a story that has dominated news headlines for the last few years: Vodacom vs Nkosana Makate in the battle for the rights to the Please Call Me technology.

After winning a high court battle against Vodacom in 2016, Nkosana has been fighting for his due amount from the cellular network. He's looking for billions of rands in compensation for a technology that Vodacom effectively stole. But they're not paying him anything close to what he is demanding/owed.

Back to Reason - the rapper has been watching all of this keenly and has decided to take a stance. Notably, against the cellular networking giants:

The decision to leave was met with support from many South Africans who applauded the rapper for lending his voice to a key national issue.

As for which network he should chose, the floor was split between Cell C, Telkom Mobile and MTN -- which is a headache in itself.

As long as you can get free Twitter then we are confident you will have made the right choice.
