Based location : Mauritius

standing out.

Looks like MXit is opening up shop in Mauritius?

Reasons? Maybe it’s the closest place that has reasonably priced bandwidth.

Would I go to mauritius? Yes, when it’s not cyclone season 🙂

MXit is growing and growing so this has brought on a change.

We will now have MXit SA (South Africa) and MXit International.
So no need to worry, our roots are firmly planeted in the ground and MXit SA is not going anywhere except up!

Without giving too much away, Mauritius would be where the head offices would be located for MXit International and MXit SA will remain in Stellenbosch.
