Dear Econet Wireless

I just want to take this chance to congratulate you on your new-found status.

As King of Assholes, I like to greet each new member of our club personally, and would like to take this opportunity to say welcome, Econet. Welcome.

I’ve watched your steady rise from persecuted underdog, when the establishment was against you and we, the people, stood behind you and fought your fight, voting with our wallets.

Through your meteoric rise, ballooning profits and regional expansion, we saw what guts and perseverance can do for even the smallest of us. You gave us hope, that however humble your beginnings are, you can rise to the top.

So there you are, big dawg, the big kahuna, king of the hill and network-in-chief. But still, it wasn’t enough.

There was one more stage in your transition to becoming The Asshole, and that was the Bitch Move.

That day has finally arrived. Telecel were moving in, grabbing increasing chunks of market share with their Mega Bonus promos (I mean, who does that?) and Usave fast broadband speeds (like, where are they getting the bandwidth?). So you had to do something, right?

Your head-stomping of Telecel, without so much as a peep of warning to your customers that they wouldn’t be receiving calls from that puny, annoyingly innovative network anymore?

That’s a Bitch Move that I, your new King, greatly approve of.

Once again, well done guys. It’s always hard to go from underdog to bully, but you’ve accomplished it with such finesse and aplomb.

The entire United Nations of Assholes salute you.

Now it’s time claim your prize, which is right here at the end of my middle finger.

Fuck you very much, and have a nice day.

    1. I’m an Econet customer. My business relies on people calling my number. If people can’t get through, I lose business.

      So wait, you’re NOT mad that people on Telecel cannot call you? Why not?

  1. as always things that happen in zim are ussually not what they seem. Politicking my dear Watson. U gotta read between the lines..

    1. That’s neither here nor there. Understand this – I’m not with Econet just to make calls, but also to RECEIVE calls from other networks. That’s a service that I expect from them. That service (regarding ability to receive calls from Telecel numbers) has been removed completely, without notice.

      I’m pissed off because as an Econet customer, they changed their product without prior notification to me, their customer.
