Matthew Masiyazi, Head of Broadband at Econet Zimbabwe
Econet Zimbabwe has today introduced WiFi in public transport in Harare. The company will have WiFi installed inside kombis for customers that are commuting in and out of the cities. Eventually they’ll also have the WiFi service in long distance kombis.
Speaking at the launch of the service, Econet executive, Mathew Masiyazi said the plan is to roll out the service to the rest of the country by August this year. “We’ll have 250 routes covered by August” he said.
Econet customers will be able to buy WiFi Zone bundles to use in Kombis. Customers will however also be able to access the WiFi zones using the Double Up Bundles if they purchase the regular data bundles.
Here is the offering:
Econet has always had fixed WiFi Zones around the country. Some 300 of them we heard today. So WiFi by Econet is not new, but WiFi in kombis is.
