Econet has once again come up with a new service again (on top of the Twitter service), that is perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea. Rather, the new service is for us soccer lovers as it sends “post-match” news updates about the English Premier League in our SMS inbox.
For some weird reason, Econet has not made any announcement of this service. As it happens, I only got to know about this service when I requested my airtime balance on the USSD. That’s when I saw this:
What’s it about?
Since Econet didn’t publicize about this service, it stands to reason that it didn’t disclose what we really get from this service. Yes, its soccer news updates but I just want to know if its a service that’s worth my hard-earned money and not some quick-cash-grab scheme. But hey, don’t worry, I’m going to be the guinea pig for you and test out this service.
How can you access the service
You just dial *717*10#
How much do you pay?
There are three prices depending on how long you want to get the soccer news updates. There is:
- The Daily package that cost $5cents
- The Weekly package that cost $25cents
- The monthly package that cost $75cents
- And there is the 3-day free trial which I’m going to subscribe to, to see how the service really works
