South African telco, Cell C has signed a roaming agreement with MTN, under which the latter will start providing both 3G and 4G services to Cell C mainly outside of the main metropolitan areas.

Cell C said that the long term roaming agreement with MTN is a multibillion-rand deal, and the migration of the majority of 3G traffic and all 4G traffic to MTN is expected to begin next month, while the bulk of the services will be transferred within two months. Cell C will roam on MTN’s network in the country’s smaller cities and rural areas where MTN currently has additional capacity. Both MTN and Cell C will maintain their own networks in the larger cities. Cell C’s roaming agreement with Vodacom, which will not be terminated, will be mainly for 2G traffic and ‘limited’ 3G traffic.
