Telecoms regulator, POTRAZ, has NOT banned WhatsApp bundles

Every year, we post something drastic for April Fools and this year we decided to go touch something a lot of people clearly love; their WhatsApp Bundles. So we ran with Local telecoms regulator POTRAZ bans WhatsApp bundles, operators given 7 days to comply“, and as per tradition, at 12 midday we added an update to let readers know it was just a joke.

We did manage to fool a few but most of our readers saw it and called it out immediately. Yesterday however, 4 things happened:

So, this is us making it as clear as we possibly can:

WhatsApp Bundles have NOT been banned at all. It was an April Fools joke.


We’re sorry for the confusion it’s caused and while we’ll still do April Fools stuff in the future (It makes us laugh and we like laughing) this type of joke won’t ever happen again.

We’re promoting this post on Facebook so as many as possible see it. Frustrating how bad news travels free where the good needs to pay its way.
