Dinosaurs drove themselves into extinction because they could not innovate, they practiced survival of the fittest, instead of survival of the smartest. They are believed to have literally eaten each other into oblivion as they cldnt invent other ways of survival. This is happening in business too. INNOVATE.

Ndizvoo here vakuru woye.... 😢😢 😢
Dear Potraz... Greetings. I'm curious to know what is it that your organisation does. Moreover, if you do what you claim to do, help us customers from the poor service delivery we are suffering at the hands of Econet and Telecel. If there is no response to this then I guess those two are getting their cues from you. Yours sincerely Disgruntled customer in a Free Zimbabwe.
Ini ndiri 1gig, regai ndizvitaure. Futi futi NetOne yakakwidza rimwe bundle so from 1500rtgs to 2500 rtgs in 1 month. Thats by 66% if I round down and 67% if I round up. Zvinoitawo here mucovid?
I never got an update on the issue of telOne, did Potraz approve their Notice not to roll over data? @techzim @technomagtv
Dear Potraz. I don't know whether it has come to your attention that Zimbabwean people are getting a bad network reception from the three major telecommunication companies namely, Econet, Telecel and NetOne. My thinking is, as you are a regulator based in Zimbabwe you have Zimbabwean people working within your organisation who are customers of these service providers and as such, noticed the bad service. Rather than waiting for us customers to lodge a complaint, please be proactive about service delivery. Please note that this has not been done with the intention of causing mayhem and despondency. Rather this was done with the intention of making Econet Zimbabwe, Telecel Zimbabwe and NetOne Zimbabwe accountable to the millions of their paying customers. Consumer Council of Zimbabwe should be roped into this matter too. Many thanks.
I have a complaint that I have lodged with Econet Wireless Zimbabwe over unaccounted funds. From March of this year to date I have lost around ZWL$200 cumulatively. Their 111 helpdesk keeps giving me impressions that they are working on it. I have written them on all their customer contact platforms but I have gotten no joy yet. Besides parrotting a few rehearsed statements the helpdesk is of no help at all. I have all the evidence to my claims and I was only hoping that they would at least assist but they are in actual fact arrogant and inconsiderate of the inconvenience they keep exposing not just my self...but the rest of their 10M customers if they continue to ignore genuine complaints and further more not resolving the cases. Kindly assist and advise how best I may persue this case.
could please do a post on internet service providers and ideally want kind of technical set up you would want for either community or district or metropolitan internet service provider?
Potraz any guidance on how I can lodge complaints against corporates, I want to complain against ZOL which has not been responsive to my query for over a month now, I have data that is sitting in their account for over a month and they are not interested in reconnecting me because of a relocation.
Potraz can you give people a detailed report of the new WhatsApp update on private data sharing with facebook
Why is econet keeping on reviewing the data cost upwards yet the government is saying the rate has stablized. Now Econet day is very expensive
Potraz what the hell is honstly, US$500000.00 for a license that costs costs peanuts across the border, why monopolize a dead industry in such a way... mxm
NETONE is not supplying airtime to the buying public. I wet to buy from Bon Marche and was told they sell only ZWL1000 upwards.....!!! How can this be? Their agents have not received airtime to sell for 3 months now... LEVEL the playing field
