Telecoms, Rates, Offers and Coverage

Econet Wireless, Zimbabwe’s largest cellco in terms of subscribers, has reportedly defied the ruling of telecoms regulator the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) to reverse its latest price promotion ‘Buddie Zone’, which saw its call rates drop to USD0.10 per minute. Technology Zimbabwe reports that, in an interview with Econet’s CEO Douglas Mboweni, the executive reportedly stated: ‘[Our customers] have been enjoying Buddie Zone, and they will continue enjoying Buddie Zone, because we see nothing wrong with the offering.’
