Soccer Lovers! Econet Has A New Service For You

Men playing football

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

    1. I totally agree there. People here to find out about the “new service” haven’t learnt a thing at all. They could have called Econet customer care to enquire, at least.
