Despite this decline TelOne registered an increase in operating profit from $7 million to $8,2 million while its net profit decreased to $5,8 million as a result of the impact of exchange rate fluctuations on its legacy loans which are held in Yen and Euro currencies.

  1. This will come to nothing come election time when all business practises will be thrown out of the window and Ministers looking for money to further their political agendas. Is Chipo refused to offer money, what will stop Super from firing her like he did people he didnt like(read not playing ball) at POTRAZ

  2. wekk that us good when a company makes profits even in light of decreasing revenue. unfortunately when a ministry borrows money from a reg authority to buy a business the authority oversees you have problems. and ps in this seal who actually owns telecel?

  3. Telone your adsl product needs a shake up… It gets slower and slower each month… We don’t have any other option living out of Harare. Does Telone throttle sites like Gmail, Facebook, Youtube and so on…..
