It’s not just Econet Wireless and Telecel that have been forced by POTRAZ to suspend their promotions, NetOne has also received a regulatory directive to halt airtime bonuses.
The state owned mobile network operator issued a press statement announcing the suspension of its Data Bundles Reloaded and Bundles Reappear Promotions.
The suspension will take effect on the 4th of August 2016 (today) at 6pm.
Over the past week, Econet and Telecel have notified their subscribers of an indefinite suspension on specific promotions following the instruction issued by POTRAZ.
No explanation has been provided by POTRAZ for the directive and the operators have so far failed to give the reason behind it.
The move has been criticised by subscribers since the promotions which offer discounts on voice, SMS and data, have offered some relief from the high tariffs that are charged for mobile telecoms service.
