Powertel, a local government owned Internet Access Provider (IAP), announced yesterday a reduction of mobile broadband prices as part of a promo called the “hoza 25 – 35 promotion”. That 25 is for the new price of the providers CDMA dongle/modem package, and the $35 a drop in flat monthly broadband subscription from $50.
But that’s not all, in a move introduced by TelOne earlier this year, Powertel has offered to reconnect subscribers that have unpaid up accounts. This follows the company’s move in May to disconnect all subscribers that owed it money. The move to reconnect them before they pay means those subscribers chose to move to another provider to avoid the debt. The good thing for Powertel is that, thanks to the new billing system, the broadband service is now prepaid and there’s no chance anyone will accumulate any debts.
We’re guessing, like TelOne, they are planning to chase up on the payments separately. Maybe even door to door.
