Econet Wireless Zimbabwe says it will next week discontinue all contract lines (post-paid packages), in yet another sign of Zimbabwe’s economic freefall.

"Econet Wireless would like to advise its valued Business Partna subscribers that the current postpaid billing system has long gone past its life span and the implementation of a new billing system has not be possible due to foreign currency constraints.

"To avoid shutting down, we regret to advise that Business Partna customers will be migrated to the prepaid platform with effect from Monday 10th November 2008," said Econet in a statement to its contract customers.

Officials who spoke to RadioVOP on condition of anonymity, said the discontinuation of contract lines is only a temporary measure aimed at cushioning the company from the harsh economic climate.

"Once a new billing system is in place, due notice will be given to our valued customers. The prepaid system is however, characterized by congestion," said Econet.
