While full mobile service on the Gautrain may still be a pipe dream, Vodacom today announced plans to help connect travellers by serving Gautrain’s Tube stations as well as its full routes with glorious high speed network coverage.
The company has steadily brought more locations online through its 4G service since it launched more than two years ago, but today it took to an official presser to celebrate an important milestone in that rollout. “Over the past three months Vodacom, in partnership with the Department of Roads and Transport, the Gautrain Management Agency, Bombela Concession Company and the Strategic Partners Group, have been busy implementing a communication solution to ensure the stations no longer have coverage dead zones.” mentioned the presser.
Passengers can’t get enough, either, with more than 2.5 million commuters having made use of the Gautrain service all can agree that its pretty frustrating not being able to use your mobile while waiting for the next cart or while on your daily ommute — no doubt helping overground commuters get their internet and call fix as they head beneath the streets in order to get to work.
