Guys I think Airtel is about to launch 4G and you might wonder why. Since all of us (hell yeah all of us ) are technocrats you might remember when Airtel was was about to lauch BlackBerry services long time ago (Michael Joseph was still CEO at Safaricom:astonished:) but Safaricom were forced to launch first even though they were not through with testing and setting up everything just to make sure that they beat Airtel in grabbing those new elite customers (BlackBerry used to be the creme dela creme).
So why I’m I relating Telkom’s story with that one of Safaricom. Well, Telkom has rebranded and lauched 4G but the signal is so poor. They are giving us free 4GB, which are not reflecting on bundle balance.
Well check out their tweet feed. Complaints of not being able to register a new simcard or do a simwap to 4G sim.
Been told to do a simwap to the new simcard, perhaps I could get the 4G signal at home and get to use the bundles and guess what? Been there at BuruBuru and I have been told that the systems are still under upgrading, I should check back next week on monday
The CEO mentioned new data products coming soon. Well they seem to have face painted the existing products so we have to wait for new products. Why? May be waiting to see what Airtel might do when they launch 4G?
So why the rush then when everything is not ready yet? I smell Airtel 4G around the corner and someone had to rush and rebrand even when they were not ready
