This is what will happen to your cellphone signal if load shedding drags on
- SA’s two largest cellular networks warn that network connection might be lost if load shedding continues.
- Batteries take up to 18 hours to recharge, and if electricity is repeatedly disrupted, it may result in network downtime.
Cellular network connectivity might soon be disrupted if load shedding continues or worsens, South Africa’s two largest network providers said.
Eskom implemented stage four load shedding for the first time in history on Monday morning, after seven generating units tripped, leaving up to 20% of South Africa without electricity at a time. Load shedding (stage 3) continued on Tuesday and into Wednesday.
