South Africa roaming
Local SIM Cards: Currently, in 2019, there are five major mobile phone providers in South Africa: MTN, Rain, Vodacom, Cell C and Telkom.
Prepaid SIM cards in South Africa are available in provider outlets, airports and almost all retail chain stores usually at R5 or less. Since 2009 all SIM cards need to be registered before activation by a RICA agent with registration usually done at the point of purchase. RICA stands for the SIM registration scheme and requires an ID card or passport and a proof of residence.

South African telecommunications operators experienced positive, if muted, growth in 2018 as total subscriptions, device ownership, internet penetration, and data usage continue to increase. The South African telecommunications sector grew by over 14% and was worth R187bn in 2018. Mobile subscriptions, device ownership, and internet penetration continues to grow and the majority of service revenue growth is due to double-digit increases in the value of data. South Africa’s fibre and data centre markets are expanding rapidly.
