End of the road for Nashua Mobile
IOL Business - Nov 3rd 2014, 11:34
Nashua Mobile officially closed all its retail stores across the country on Friday.
This includes a long list of staff retrenchments, which have taken place since an announcement was made early this year.
Customers are said to have been sent text messages informing them that it was the end of the road for the company.
On its website, Nashua also confirmed the closure, saying it will, however, continue to service customers’ needs until its subscriber base is successfully migrated.
A cession (transfer) date will also be communicated to customers.
Last night, a Nashua call centre agent said all MTN and Vodacom subscribers would deal directly with the cellular networks.
Altech Autopage will deal with Cell C customers.
Some customers took to Twitter on Friday.
@Popcorn Candi said, “Thank you #NashuaMobile and @MTNza for wasting my time and patience. All the more reason to consider new provider for my upgrade.

While South Africa attempts to shore up its own economy amid high inflation rates and a stuttering inherited financial system, the continent as a whole continues to grow.

Ubuntu is one of those uniquely African concepts that, for many, define what it means to be South African. A beautiful word that exemplifies a philosophy of caring for the welfare of every individual in a community – that special acknowledgement that “I am because we are.” Ubuntu is a spirit that ignites people to work together, for the benefit of all.
