But there’s some hope for their modems, as they can now re-use these modems by joining YooMee, an internet provider which recently became a mobile virtual network operator.
YooMee‘s 4G sim cards are apparently compatible with Vodafone’s modems. This is at least what a message sent by YooMee to Vodafone’s ex-subscribers said. This message invited the ex-subscribers of Vodafone to buy the new operator’s sim cards in order to be able to use their modems.
With this offer, YooMee allows Vodafone Cameroon’s ex-subscribers to capitalize on their investments on the modems but, it also eyes the subscribers Vodafone Cameroon had before it stopped its operation (about 2 million subscribers).
Concerning the validity of the compatibility, it can be explained by the fact that both operators used to exploit the network of CAMTEL, Cameroon’s incumbent telecommunication operator.
Could this be one of the tales of “One man’s poison is another person’s meat“? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section.
