MTN has announced the launched of its Supersonic Air Fibre internet plans, aimed at providing wireless connectivity with fibre-quality speeds.
“We are breaking down the traditional barriers to entry that have denied many access to a modern, connected life,” Calvin Collett, Managing Director of MTN SA’s ISP Supersonic, said in a statement.

“From Soweto to Swellendam, we believe that every household deserves the speed and benefits of fibre-like connectivity, and through Air Fibre we believe we can achieve this.”
The offering uses unlicensed spectrum due to the lack of availability of licenced spectrum. It uses this open spectrum with new technology to deliver connectivity.
“Our Supersonic AirFibre offering is in line with our track record of optimising frequency bands. Previously, we have undertaken this approach through the allocation of repurposed bands for 2G mobile services (using GSM technology) as well as a new generation of mobile technologies, including third-generation (using UMTS) technology and fourth-generation (using LTE) technology,” Collett says.
