The construction of base stations create business opportunities to the communities through which partnerships are established. This was said by Econet’s Public Relations Officer, Puleng Masoabi.
“When a new tower is constructed, the people from the surrounding areas get the opportunity to partner with Econet as dealers and agents to assist others with airtime sales and other Econet services,” said Ms Masoabi.
Pontšeng and Holy Cross customers will be able to enjoy convenient services like paying bills with EcoCash, registering and paying insurance premiums for EcoSure, triple data benefit on Pokola and enter Econet promotions to win cash prizes and products & services which can all be accessed through *100#.
