MTN group work to ensure network continuity amid Covid-19 outbreak

MobileSouth AfricaTelecomTop Stories

Market mobile operator MTN is focusing on network continuity and taking measures to safeguard stakeholders from Covid-19.

Following official confirmation of Covid-19 cases in some of MTN’s markets, the MTN Group has taken a series of precautionary measures to ensure continuity of services and the safety of its stakeholders including employees, customers, communities and suppliers against the potential outbreak.

A key priority for MTN is to ensure business continuity. Their services over this time will be even more critical, so a priority is ensuring network continuity, availability of spares and equipment and the upgrading of capacity.

In their own environments they have installed thermal scanners at MTN office facilities, as an early detection method for testing body temperature and enhanced hygiene measures including hand sanitisers in their offices. A work-from-home plan for employees has also been implemented. In addition, they have placed restrictions on all international travel and also reducing, wherever possible, domestic travel, as they continue to monitor the situation.

MTN continue to monitor the global situation closely and strictly adhere to the recommendations of relevant international authorities such as the World Health Organisation and the local departments of health.

MTN is an emerging market mobile operator at the forefront of technological and digital changes. Their headquarters are in Johannesburg.
