Econet launches a 24hour Data Extender
Econet Telecom Lesotho unveiled a reusable data bundle that not only top up the existing data bundle but also revives and extends the window period by a further 24 hours dubbed data extender.
This data refill bundle offers 1GB worth of data at only M19 and unlike normal daily bundles that expire at midnight on the day of purchase; data refill bundle expires 24 hours later if not refilled.
This data bundle is refillable; therefore, any additional purchase of the same bundle within 24 hours, that is, when the existing bundle is still active, extends the expiry time by a new 24 hour period. This also means that the previous expiry time from the initial bundle ceases to exist when the new one kicks in.
Econet Product Manager: Data, Itumeleng Mpasi says they have realised that some customers do not finish their daily data bundles hence the introduction of a new refillable daily data bundle.
“We are living in times where unused communication bundles expire” says Mpasi. “One can no longer store bundles for future use; Data and calling bundles are no longer carried forward to the next day, week or month if they are not exhausted” she continues.
“As a telecommunications company, our job is to provide communication’ solutions to our customers and that, we can only achieve through the consumer behaviour management per market segment which influenced our decision to come up with this refillable data bundle” says Mpasi
She says additional purchase of a normal daily bundle tend to increase data volume but never extends the expiry time from midnight to the next day and usually leaves unused data which then expires at midnight of the same day.
“1GB daily data bundle refill is one of many solutions that Econet is providing to ensure that customers stay connected” she adds
Data extender can be purchased through *100# or EcoCash menu under buy bundles.
