Econet Wireless Zimbabwe says Kwese TV has signed 40 000 customers and created over 2, 200 jobs.
According to reports Econet media director Zachary Wazara said they have subscribed over 40 000 Kwese TV subscribers. He said, “The total should now be over 40 000 [Kwese subscribers] in Zimbabwe. The sales rate has been the same ever since we started and it is phenomenal. In fact, what we are seeing is that people from all walks of life are coming through and buying, which is creating that kind of momentum. Our challenge is getting enough installers.”
“We have probably recruited over 1 200 installers and we continue to recruit those and we need to double, if not triple the number so that is a growing thing which is really one of the key issues,” he added.
He said that Kwese has over 1 000 brand ambassadors that have been recruited. Econet has created a $1,96 million monthly revenue which is expected to increase at the same rate as subscriptions.
Apart from the $49 subcription fee, Kwese also allows mobile devices to connect to the account, as one account comes with up to five TVE accounts.
