Complaints of MTN's disrupted data services flooded social media websites such as Twitter on Thursday.

Recent reports mostly originate from: Johannesburg, Cape Town, Pretoria, Durban, Port Elizabeth, Midrand, Centurion, Boksburg, Bloemfontein, and Kempton Park.

MTN sent out a statement saying, "We are currently experiencing major outage at new Doornfontein and Randburg data centres

"Affecting VPN, APN, all connectivity to branches and external facing sites.

"The incident is receiving our highest attention and we are working towards restoring services," said the statement.

It is not clear at to when the data network problems started.
