Africom To Pull Plug on Free Internet, Readies ‘Integration’

Staff Writer Avatar

The free internet browsing some lucky Africom subscribers have been enjoying for a little more than 2 months now is coming to an end in a few days. Apparently, the techies at Africom have caught up with the runaway broadband.

Africom sent out SMSes on Friday, 19 November, alerting subscribers to visit Africom Offices and update their profiles so they could continue surfing. We’re not sure what exactly this ‘updating profiles’ process is. Hey, outside the voice telephony rumours, nobody knows what this ‘integration’ business is.

Here’s the full text of the SMS:

Please come and update your profile to allow your data card to accept our service integration. Bring your data cards so that your accounts can allow you to top up and balance enquiry. We are open Saturday and Sunday 20th and 21st November to ensure smooth rollover.

Ok, there you have it; be thankful for the free internet you got and go register, again.

    Well they have pulled the plug. I was enjoying unlimited use (after paying the $18 of course). Downloaded over 2.5 Gigs..with the new system its harder to cheat the system but it can be done. Big change was new user names eg the pw still same africom001 and #777…Professional CDMA Software like DFS gives u backend access to config MIN and pwd info..Hint Hint
