It’s not easy looking a gift horse in the mouth. See, we love cheaper voice and data so don’t get us wrong; we like that Econet is offering new cheaper stuff as a mobile operator. It’s new from them but not new in this market, and in fact compared to what’s already on the market, it is underwhelming. It’s as if Econet is offering with half its energy and hoping the subscribers will jump for joy with all their energy.
Anyway, done ranting. To the promo itself: it’s called a Daily Bundle promo and it offers free voice minutes, mobile broadband data and MMS messages (we had no idea people were still interested in MMS). Here’s a table of the promo offering:
|Amount||Free voice||Free data||Free MMS|
|$5||46 minutes||50MB||40 MMS|
|$10||94 minutes||100MB||80 MMS|
|$20||190 minutes||200MB||160 MMS|
There’s no information about expiry but we’re guessing since it has “Daily” in the name, the free stuff vanishes after 24 hours. if you are a prepaid subscriber (Buddie), you can access these freebies right now if you dial *140#
Earlier today, Econet hinted on their Facebook page that they are cooking something BIG for the Buddie subscribers. Maybe this is it, we’re not sure.
