Harare. (News of The South) – Mobile telecommunications giant, Netone through its mobile money platform, OneMoney is donating wi-fi devices to councils in rural areas so that district administrators can make smooth OneMoney transactions whilst simultaneously increasing internet access to the remote areas.

This comes after Netone introduced EasyCover late last month to propel the use of its mobile money platform, OneMoney.

The wi-fi devices called One-Fi have already been issued to councils in Hurungwe, Mazowe and Mudzi among others.

Brian Mautandiro, Netone’s Chief executive officer said the challenges council officials are facing in order to make payments to their respective recipients prompted them to provide the wi-fi devices.



He said he hope the donations by the mobile operator will relieve councils from the challenges.

“District administrators have been facing challenges to make payments from their respective centers and as a result had to travel to the nearest town where banking facilities are available”

Zimbabwe which is currently experiencing a continued rise of the internet and mobile penetration the rural dwellers have little or no internet access.

The move by Netone will brigde the gap in rural communities as well as increasing the user base of OneMoney.

Meanwhile, Econet’s Ecocash remains the dominant in mobile money transactions across the country even to the remotest parts of Zimbabwe.
