Econet has been pretty consistent with coming up with something every year. It has been with us through the powercuts and through the cash shortages. Some of its products have really been lifesavers while others still need a little bit of getting used to. Of course we would want it to ease up on the data charges but otherwise, Econet we wish you many more!!
