Ethio Telecom outsources credit card service

Wednesday 14 September 2016 | 09:48 CET | News
Ethio Telecom has signed a contract with two global companies to introduce a mobile credit card service for its clients, reports Addis Fortune. Their names are yet to be disclosed. When the arrangement becomes effective, mobile users' connections will not be interrupted by an insufficient balance, according to Ethio Telecom, which serves 47 million subscribers. Customers can keep using the service even if their credit runs out, and will be charged later when they top up their accounts.
