The company said the subscriber base had the potential to rise further to 8,5 million customers. In a statement yesterday, EWZ said after a slow start due to capacity constraints, which had resulted in shortages of Buddie lines, the number of connected users had grown to 7,1 million.
The largest telecoms operator by subscriber base said it had increased capacity significantly and had mopped up the backlog in demand.
Econet Wireless chief executive officer Douglas Mboweni said he was satisfied that over 90% of Zimbabwe businesses were Econet customers under its Business Partna brand.
“Our research shows that corporate Zimbabwe, both big and small, gets its service from Econet,” Mboweni said.“We are very pleased to see that the most serious business users are our customers now.
We are working hard to ensure that we give them the services they need.”
Econet Wireless has assured its customers that the shortage of sim cards was now a thing of the past.
