According to a reliable source, it’s now possible to register for EcoCash if you are a subscriber on NetOne. This has not been officially announced by Econet or NetOne but it is apparently working as we speak.
Interoperability wheels in motion…
This could be a move to comply with Supa Mandiwanzira’s directive to ensure all the mobile money platforms work together seamlessly by April of this year. When we reported on the interoperability of money platforms we thought the moves were a while away but it seems the wheels are already in motion. Telecel also confirmed that they’re interested in working with the other two operators so there seems to be a unity of purpose among the operators to get this achieved as soon as possible.
We are going to try register one of our NetOne lines and then give a rundown of how the service actually works on the NetOne platform.
