Zain Ghana and ‘their’

Apparently in a bid to rival MTN Ghana’s, Zain Ghana is launching its own content portal for its subscribers. The competition on the mobile front in Ghana has been between MTN and Zain in recent times. There is a problem however. The web address Zain is advertising doesn’t belong to them and doesn’t contain any Zain content. The domain is just a parked domain littered with ads. I first noticed the domain when I checked my account balance on Zain. I accessed it on my mobile and thought my phone had malaria when I saw the wrong content. I am surprised a multi-national company could spend money advertising a wrong web address to their subscribers and even on national TV (GTV).

Stay tuned for the right web address whenever I find it.
