Why is the coverage maps for Telkom LTE not up to date?

+1 vote
I see that no one can sign up for Telkom through Afrihost for the coverage map is not up to date. I can confirm after having to sign up at Webafrica that the whole of Upington area including Keidebees suburb has coverage. Even the uncapped package Webafrica offers has reception. The speedtest of the non-uncapped packages run at 70+. Also whole town has RAIN Coverage

Good Day,

Our coverage map is linked to the Telkom coverage map, and there is no LTE coverage for Upington on Telkom's website as well. Follow the link to Telkom's coverage map https://secure.telkom.co.za/today/ucm/ 

Please make sure you are checking LTE and not 2G/3G or Fibre.

If you require further assistance, please 
send a message to our WhatsApp helpline: https://whatsapp.afrihost.com
or visit our Help Centre: https://help.afrihost.com/
or see our FAQ page: http://faq.afrihost.com

Thank you

Hi mate, so I know it is only a matter of using it at a minimum in case it is not updated, try to use a maps app like Google or one of your preference and that having good coverage you can use it without problems, you can also use map maker to have all your maps saved and be able to use them without any coverage. I hope my comment has been helpful.
