We tested for disappearing data in South Africa — and one operator is guilty

MyBroadband conducted disappearing airtime and data tests in November on Vodacom, MTN, and Cell C.

We used three identical Huawei Mate 20 Pro devices to ensure an equivalent testing environment for all operators. All three devices were updated, and factory reset.

My Data Manager was installed to have a second opinion on data used during the test.

All updates were disabled, and all the apps were individually denied mobile network access.

Mobile data was switched off, and the phones were connected to a stable Wi-Fi internet connection for the duration of the test. VoLTE and data roaming were also switched off.

We used SIM cards that have been active for some time with varying levels of airtime and data.

All the SIM cards were checked to ensure that no WASP services were enabled that could use airtime or data.

The phones were kept in the same office for the duration of the test, and only USSD balance checks were performed to check data and airtime.

During the week-long test, none of the devices showed mobile data use in the built-in Android settings or the My Data Manager app.

Checking the data balance on Vodacom and MTN confirmed that no mobile data was used. Cell C was, however, a different story.

Cell C showed that small amounts of data disappeared throughout the test.

MyBroadband asked Cell C for comment about the disappearing data, and Cell C chief technology officer Schalk Visser said they recorded valid chargeable usage on their data network for our test device

Visser said that data could be consumed for various reasons, including that Android smartphones may use mobile data while connected to an LTE network even when the connection is disabled.
