The Motorola Xoom has been announced and it is upgradeable to LTE 4G, I bet, as soon as it is launched, many South Africans would want to buy it as you can use 4G. This is where the service providers come into the play, they have to make sure that 4G is available through out South Africa.
Vodacom is the leading cellular service provider, the main area that they have initiated 4G to its potential, is in the Eastern Cape. Not all of the buyers will move to the Eastern Cape, that I’m sure of. But with speeds as high as 42Mbps, its best if you start planning to move there. The network should be fast in the beginning as it won’t as much traffic hopefully.
