Government Wants US$300 Million For NetOne & TelOne

News, Telecomms
The government has wanted to get TelOne and NetOne off its hands -partially- for a while now. New reports suggest that US$300 million will be enough to get the two telecommunications companieswhich recently posted much improved financial results. NetOne posted a $10 million profit and whilst TelOne is still in the red, they too have improved significantly.

What Does Twitter’s Desktop Redesign Add?

Social Media
Apart from a refreshed design what else has been added and does this make the desktop site better to use? Well, first of the desktop site now has an Explore page which makes it easier to find live video and local moments based on your location.

Lists, Messages and Profile now require fewer clicks to get to. It was irritating having to click on your picture and then select Profile from the old design, so this t

ZOL Unused Data To Start Rolling Over Into Following Month From August

ZOL Unused Data To Start Rolling Over Into Following Month From August

Telecomms
ZOLs decision not to allow you to carry over unused data into the next month has always been quite unpopular. You would only assume that this irritation has been felt more because of loadshedding. Couple that with more expensive data costs and you have a trinity of factors that might actually force customers to ditch a service. Thankfully ZOL has acknowledged that this issue needs fixing and has promised to fix it. From the 1st of August, ZOL will allow subscribers who haven’t used the entirety of their data to carry it over into the next month. They announced this in response to a complaint on Twitter: Thank you very much for the suggestion. We are pleased to announce that starting 1 August 2019, unused data will be rolling over to the next month. ^TN
