Telecel back on the market

TELECEL Zimbabwe is back on the market with new products offering to reclaim its market share after spending over 18 months on the periphery of the country’s telecommunications industry.

The company’s chief executive, Angeline Vere, last week said Telecel had a host of new products in the offing after finalising the shareholder issue.

Government recently completed a $40 million acquisition of VimpelCom’s 60 percent shareholding in the mobile network operator.

“We have lined up a number of new exciting and innovative products and services which we will be bringing to you very soon,” she said at an event in Harare.

“Today is the day we boldly announce to the world that Telecel is here to stay, the day we announce to the world that we are 100 percent behind you our stakeholders and that we will continue to be the company and the brand that offers value 100 percent of the time,” she added.

Vere said Zimbabwe’s third largest mobile network operator built its brand around customers and ensuring that its innovative offerings bring value and convenience in a consistent and sustainable way.

“Even when things have been tough we have always put you first through a business model that is customer-centric in its make-up and being. I am here to reinforce that promise to you —  Telecel is here for you 100 percent through affordable value offers,” she said.

She further indicated that the company’s brands, promotions and offerings are also designed to meet this heart-felt promise.

“Take for instance the recently reintroduction MegaBonus, our voice promotion that gives 100 percent bonus across all networks and across all recharge denominations of a dollar or more. Mega bonus benefits are to be received instantly upon a successful recharge there is no need for you to opt-in.

“Apart from MegaBonus our popular and unmatched voice offering we also recently launched MegaBoost a combo package that boosts the value of your dollar by offering not just voice to our pre-paid subscribers but adds on data, text, and What’s App access.  The package gives you the freedom to use your data as you please, be it on twitter, Facebook or Instagram,” she said.

In support of financial inclusion, Telecel has also been continuously improving Telecash which comes with the company’s gold card that enables holders to swipe for cash and make payments on all ZimSwitch enabled point of sale machines.

In addition, with Telecash’s banking service, from your Telecash registered mobile phone you are able to send money to 13 banks and other mobile networks as well transfer money as from the same banks to your phone.
