Luke M. Revill, Digital Project Manager at the SATC said “The Mnet team delivered beyond the Commission’s expectations and built an engaging mobile experience for the fans of the Santos Tour Down Under.”
Revill added “this development is a first for the SATC. We are seeing more people visiting our websites from mobile devices than ever before.
