Telecel lodges a complaint against Econet

24 Jul 2013

Zimbabwe’s third largest mobile operator in terms of subscribers Telecel Zimbabwe has lodged a complaint with the Postal and Telecoms Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) against market leader Econet Wireless for reportedly using unfair business practices, the Bulawayo reports. According to anonymous sources cited by the local media outlet, a Telecel promotion, which slashed tariffs by nearly 50% across all networks in Zimbabwe, resulted in poor connectivity between the two operators’ networks prompting Telecel to refer the matter to the POTRAZ. The watchdog was not available for comments.
