You’d think that with thousands of their customers pissed off by their bad and slow connection on their HSDPA, competitors of IM2 would see an opportunity for the quick kill.
Here’s what Unspun would do if he was a telco and a competitor to IM2: Get one of my IT people to write a script for the Huawei E220 modem that IM2 uses so that it is compatible with thier SIM cards. Provide reliable, reasonably priced data services.
The only thing stopping IM2 customers from junking thier IM@ service is the investment they’ve made in purchasing the modem. If th modem can be used with other telco users they, like Unspun, would gleefully junk IM2 to repay them for the contempt they show to their customers.
If anyone has figured out a way to make a SIM card from another phone provider work with the Huawei E220 modem please let Unspun know. He, together with his blogger and offline network of friends will help spread the word so fast that IM2’s broadband will never be able to match them.
So what’s stopping competing telcos? Surely there’s a huge opportunity here to take market share from IM2?
