Econet prepared to share infrastructure only if other operators contribute equally

Speaking at the four day Institute of Chartered Accountants of Zimbabwe (ICAZ) Winter School which ended yesterday in Victoria Falls, Econet chief executive Mr Douglas Mboweni said they are ready to share infrastructure only if other operators contribute equally.

Said Mboweni:

Econet was the last entrant in the mobile sector when others had been there for two years but we were first to propose infrastructure sharing. Our colleagues’ perception then was that infrastructure was a competition tool hence there was rejection. We then borrowed to build our own infrastructure and to then turn around and say just give away when others are not putting anything, hang on a minute, it’s not fair.
