“The Vodacom Durban July has always been about the glitz, the glamour and the horses. The July fashion becomes a trending topic across the racecourse and it was amazing to see our super-fast Internet enable guests to instantly share their experience and fashion moments with the rest of South Africa on various social networks,” said Nadia Mohamed, Vodacom’s Executive Head of Brand.
