Cell C livid over “most useless” banner: report

The Cell C billboard outside the World Wear shopping centre in Randburg, with the message “The most useless service provider in SA – Cell C Sandton City” has been changed this morning.

The billboard was erected on Thursday 6 November 2014, containing Cell C’s official branding, and various messages that Cell C Sandton City is a useless service provider.

On Saturday morning (8 November 2014) the 20m x 5m billboard was changed, removing all the Cell C branding using black tape – but the negative messages remained.

MyBroadband spoke to the people who made the changes, who said that legal issues regarding the use of Cell C’s branding were behind the changes.

The following images show the before and after pictures of the anti-Cell C billboard in Randburg.

The person behind the banner

On Friday, a person called Beverley phoned Radio 702 saying that her boss was behind the billboard.

According to Beverley the prolonged battle to resolve problems with Cell C pushed her boss to commission the banner.

Beverley said that Cell C “is livid with us”, adding that that Cell C may try to take them to court. However, she noted that they have facts, figures and emails about their battle with Cell C to back up their story.

Cell C confirmed on Friday that there is a dispute between Cell C and the customer responsible for the banner. “We are attempting to resolve the matter,” Cell C said.
