EWZ marks 14 years
Econet Wireless Zimbabwe has highlighted its achievements as it marks its 14th anniversary.
Econet Wireless says the first call on its network was made in July 1998. Within weeks of that first call, over 10 000 Zimbabweans were making calls on the Econet network. The company says its growth since then has been “nothing short of phenomenal. From 10 000 customers at the end of that first year 14 years ago, today we serve well over six million Zimbabweans.”
EWZ says it has “put a cellphone into the hand of eight out of every 10 Zimbabweans”, now employs over a thousand people and is constantly bringing to market improvements.
“Today, our customers can make transactions over their phones, surf the internet, send and receive emails, and share special moments with their loves ones,” the company said.
