Beeline Telecoms to increase competition

Economy Beeline Telecoms to increase competition

The Consumer Unity Trust Society (CUTS) is confident that the introduction of Beeline Telecoms, a fourth mobile telecommunication service provider in Zambia, will bring about competition and improved service delivery among existing mobile phone network service providers.

CUTS Programmes Coordinator Ishmael Zulu said consumers have for a long time complained about the poor service provision by some mobile phone network provider in the country.

Mr. Zulu stated today in an interview with ZANIS that the existing service providers will have to pull up their socks as they will face stiff competition.

He also noted that Zambia, like many other countries, has seen an increased demand for mobile telecommunications owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We are hopeful that this will enhance service delivery because people work from home and students have online lessons. There is need for a stable internet network,” he said.

The Zambia Information Communication Technology Authority (ZICTA) last week announced that a license has granted to Beeline Telecom Limited to commence mobile phone operations in the country.

Beeline Telecom, will be required to commence operations within the next six months failure to which, unless determined otherwise by the authority, the licence will be revoked.

  1. I love zambian entrepreneurship. I hope to work with this company soon. Who knows I may decide to buy them out. I like their business model.

  2. Peter Njobvu – I thought the same given that Dangote factory has its own power source but who can blame them when there is so much uncertainty and cost of production is ever increasing in Zambia….the competition increases its prices whilst Dangote suffer alone.

  3. I love seeing zambian in business . I hope to work with this company soon. Who knows I may decide to buy them out. I like this. Ba upnd diasporan see your friends doing well while you are there abroad cleaning toilets

  4. CUTS Programmes Coordinator Ishmael Zulu surely how can you be confident of something that has no track record and you dont know its shareholders!!

  5. It’s a welcome initiative for the 3 MNO’s to have some competition actually. However, she’d more light in regards to the ownership of the business, it’s good for the people to know. Every ethical business should be transparent in their operations.

  6. THIS IS RUBBISH REPORTING WHERE ONE IS LEFT TO RESEARCH FOR THE INFORMATION LT SHOULD HAVE PROVIDED.

    CAN LT TELLS FROM WHICH COUNTRY THIS BEELINE THING IS FROM, FOR HOW LONG THEY HAVE BEEN IN TELECOMS BUSINESS, HOW MUCH THEY ARE WORTH AND MANY MORE. LT THANKS FOR YOUR LAZINESS.
