Utande, a subsidiary of Dandemutande recently launched an LTE service to rival Telone’s Blaze and ZOL Wibroniks service. Utande LTE is launching with uncapped packages only, which puts it more in line with ZOL’s Business Packages.
To find out more about the service, and to ask if there were capped packages in the near future. We were joined by Dandemutande’s CEO Never Ncube.
On top of Utande’s LTE service we discussed:
- The changes that Dandemutande has seen in the internet services market since its inception. (Afterall the internet has gone from being a luxury to a necessity.)
- Why Utande went the LTE services route.
- If/When Utande LTE will be launching capped or pay-as-you go style packages.
- What the pandemic has done for Dandemutande/Utande’s business in terms of customer uptake and data consumption.
- Residents in areas old and new have had issues with getting internet services. Was Utande LTE a way of improving access to the sprawling neighbourhoods as well as service existing ones.
- Dandemutande has a number of services in its product catalogue, vehicle tracking, cloud services and e-learning. Is the company going to add on to these services in future?

Our conversation with Tendai Mupaso the co-founder of logistics startup Yaita. It had been a while since we touched base and we thought we’d talk about the business as well as their new product the Fulfilment Centre. The product is basically a warehouse where e-commerce businesses store their inventory.
The biggest difference with a normal warehouse and what Yaita is doing, is that Yaita will handle delivery of those goods. Your customers can order through you but you don’t have to ship anything, all of that is done by Yaita.
We also had a chat with Fresh Ideas founder Kuda Musasiwa. The startup is offering the tools for anyone or business that wants to start an e-commerce operation. There is, of course, a fee of US$99 a month but for that, you get payments intergrations, website design and more
Lastly, with the buzz around Spotify we thought we would have a chat about all the the things we should expect the service to bring to Zimbabwe.
