Brodacom’s “Reserve Your Number” finally up. Brodacom.com now down

Yesterday, when we posted an article about Spiritage’s new voice telephony and Internet company, Brodacom, we echoed the message from Brodacom’s adverts that you could reserve your number on the site www.reserveyournumber.co.zw which, Brodacom had promised, would be available at 1400hrs yesterday. It didn’t happen. And by the time we left the office yesterday, the number reservation system still wasn’t available.

Today though it’s working they’ve switched it on! I personally just reserved my Econet number (well, part of it) so I can migrate ASAP when the opportunity presents itself.

We’re concerned though with how unpolished the internet side of the launch strategy feels and we’re wondering if this reflects on Broadcom’s rollout readiness. Yesterday for example, we reported on Brodacom’s new website www.brodacom.com, and it was hastily taken down soon after. It currently still shows some red “Website coming soon” text.

Someone at Spiritage must have switched it on before its time, so, chances are whatever products and services we were seeing there (Tokmo, TokBusiness, Brodahome, BrodaBand, Anywair) are not ready for unveiling.

www.brodacom.co.zw, where the market (and Google Search) would naturally expect Brodacom to be, has some web hosting company default landing page. The domain spiritage.co.zw is not registered at all. Same goes for spiritagegroup.co.zw.

The www.true4g.co.zw website on the other hand, where Brodacom cleverly asked its market what it expects from a true 4G network, still says “Sorry responses will be open on Thursday 14 July 2011” when you check for responses. This despite the fact that today is Thursday 14 July 2011.

  1. I don’t know about you people but I like “Checkyourself” (is he really a CEO or an adult, wow!). I think he ads to the contrast. I was beginning to think that this forum was all about geeks and intellects. well what do you know? it welcomes all types of um… people. I think such comments help keep the ratings up and the audience in a good mood. If we have a right to speak our minds so does “Check yourself”, let the kid speak (he is really a kid right? I’m not sure anymore). Forget the whole “children must be seen and not heard” thing, we are progressive over here at Techzim.

    Firstly I feel sorry for the “designer” who thought… “Oooooh let me put an i Phone on this website I think it will make it look preety” it turns out he was wrong because there is some tech blog in Zim that will make you pay for such unrighteous mistakes! I have a feeling Techzim was largely responsible for the shutting down of this website, good job! In this forum we eat companies that throw half-baked products at the market. As a matter of fact their new website better be a good one because I have a few good disses I can’t wait to unleash on the next corporate sinner who decides to sail these waters.  You don’t throw half baked  products at us, no sir. I’m told that the last CEO who came here left with his self esteem damaged and career aspirations in doubt. Do you know why CEO’s get paid big? Because they also pay big for their mistakes. If you don’t want to be answerable for your mistakes take on politics or manual employment. In business people earn big AND PAY BIGGER!  If we call Strive Masiiwa an idiot he won’t tell us to go to hell or rubber his huge fortune in our face! He’ll try to figure out what to change so that we become his next customers. You have to be an ass licker to stay in business. For those wondering what websites have to do with this discussion,  all I’ll say is we wouldn’t be having this discussion about technology if they had a good informative website. If you are a business man think for your customer because they are  to busy paying to think!

    @ Checkyourself I think my achievements or title are irrelevant so are yours. In this forum only the quality of our opinions matter! focus on that instead.
