South Africa Prepaid TravelSim Card
South Africa has an extensive GSM network, working on the same frequency as the rest of Africa and Europe. There are four cell phone providers in South Africa: Vodacom www.vodacom.co.za, MTN www.mtn.co.za, Cell-C www.cell-c.co.za and Virgin Mobile www.virginmobile.co.za .
The networks support GPRS countrywide and 3G, EDGE and HSDPA support is available in larger urban areas. Do not assume you will not have network coverage just because you can not see a GSM tower. Many of the towers have been built to look like trees (Vodacom) or other structure (MTN) in order to better blend into the surroundings and not be an eyesore.
