    There is not need supporting all bands for having coverage in the different types of networks. For example, if it does not support one band, could make you not to have 4G coverage in rural areas or having bad coverage inside buildings, but having it without problems in cities.

    In this page we are going to show you the compatibility of Fairphone 3 with the mobile networks of South Africa and with the telephony operators that provide service in South Africa.

    Keep in mind that to have a perfect coverage, the ideal thing is that the Fairphone 3 has all the frequencies for all networks, that are used in South Africa, although if the Fairphone 3 lacks any of the frequency bands used, it does not mean that it does not work on that network, but coverage could be limited to certain areas.
