Potraz tells NetOne to stop ‘illegal’ promotion

The Post and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz) has informed the public of a directive to stop one of the government-owned mobile network operators NetOne to stop an ‘illegal’ promotion.

Without giving details on what that promotion is, it said:


NetOne has been instructed to stop running unapproved promotions with immediate effect by the Regulator. They have also been asked to show cause why they were running an illegal promotion .

We will give all consumers feedback on what action would have taken by tomorrow (Friday 20 January)

‘Creating a level playing field ‘

Pretty sure the authority will then say that it doesn’t show favoritism.

But at the end of the day, it is the customer that loses out on what looks like a game-changing promotion.
