Econet hollers for its dollars at TelOne

10 Dec 2010

Econet Wireless Zimbabwe, the country’s largest mobile operator, has called on the government to help it recover USD38 million in call termination fees which it says it is owed by state-run fixed line incumbent TelOne, local newspaper Newsday reports. The cellco claims that TelOne has not paid it any fees for terminating fixed-to-mobile calls on Econet’s network since January 2009, when the sector began a changeover from local currency to US dollars. Econet chairman Tawanda Nyambirai on Wednesday appealed to Vice-President Joice Mujuru during a government-business conference held in Harare, for assistance in recovering the accumulated monthly arrears.
