Fibroniks Lead

Last week we witnessed ZOL re-branding their Fibroniks packages in a move that was meant to make Internet connectivity affordable to every citizen across the country. The Internet Service Provider continued to deploy its excellent fiber broadband countrywide but recently lowered its prices on different Fibroniks packages to cater for the price sensitivity market.

ZOL has a very friendly and strategic marketing team which personally for me has out-shined other service provider help desks. This has been one of their key strengths in deploying their Internet Services because of their marketing team’s ability to keep warm, everlasting relationships with their clients. Technology is a very difficult subject to explain, believe me but the ZOL team has a very special way of explaining what you stand to lose if you do not get that fibroniks connections into your premises.
