However VoIP being the futuristic way of communication, I think Africom got this wrong.
Imagine a system where you are charged double! That is what happens when using Africom. You pay for making the calls and then pay your data bundles to actually connect to the internet.
So it means even if you have your Africom topped up, but without data in your phone, you can’t make a call.
Besides, how many people will actually install an app on their phones just to make a call via VoIP? Many Zimbabweans can’t even be bothered to install apps like Viber or Tango that offer free VoIP services.
Does Africom think that people will dump Skype? Besides, it is more easier to just buy Airtime and phone. Africom is charging a ground zero rate of 12cents a minute, or just buy a Telecel SIM and take advantage of the #MegaReloaded promo.
Nice try Africom but Guro-o just won’t work.
