According to the 2019 Ranking Digital Rights Corporate Accountability Index, several telecommunications companies around the world are still struggling to provide users with information about how their data is collected, who it’s shared with and why, Quartz Africa reports. One of the 24 companies evaluated in the report, South Africa–headquartered MTN Group has 22 markets in Africa and the Middle East, with more than 220 million subscribers. According to the index, MTN provides little information on data transparency with its users and doesn’t seem to have “a clear commitment” to protect net neutrality. They also “did not sufficiently disclose its policies for handling government network shutdown orders.”
