State-owned mobile operator NetOne's latest products have received positive response from the public, with some saying they will prove to be a game-changer in the information communication technology (ICT) industry. NetOne last week launched OneCover, a micro mobile insurance that offers funeral insurance to subscribers and OneTech, which offers smartphones on credit loaded with free OneFusion airtime for the whole year. OneCover is a partnership with the insurance giant, First Mutual Life, which is going to underwrite the product. OneTech is a $10 million partnership with BancEASY, a subsidiary of BancABC. A Harare subscriber, Chipo Tendai said with OneCover, she could now have affordable funeral insurance. "I received a message on my phone about OneCover and I enquired about it as I wanted to know about it," she said. "I was happy to know about it as it is very cheap and I can afford cover even for my in laws who are in their 70s." I like the fact that the premiums will be paid within a day after submitting all the information. "For real, this is something great for a lot of people as they are normally afraid of these schemes as they cannot be trusted. most give people problems when funeral time comes."
