According to Fin24, Econet chief executive Douglas Mboweni told an analysts briefing on Thursday that the 35% cut in mobile tariffs and the 5% duty on mobile airtime had negatively affected the viability of the country's telecommunication sector.

Revenue for the period was slightly lower at $746.2m from $752.6m as the group managed to minimise losses in voice revenues by pushing through other services which are of lower margins in nature.
