Another positive post about nomad 🙂
As some of you already know, the Executive Director of Nomad, Mr Shankar Peerthy wanted to meet me to discuss certain things about nomad.
So today, i went to meet him at 0930 in the Cyber Tower, Ebene.
We talked for about lol, one and a half hr in the coffee shop, discussing a lot of things, mainly about the company profile, the achievements, milestones, future projects, the barriers and problems faced by the company.
|Am usually null in describing people but Mr Shankar Peerthym is someone young, dynamic with a clear vision and high potential.|
He is also very friendly n thnks for the coffee 😛
Together with his partner, he had set up Network Plus some years ago and after the completion of the Cyber Tower, they moved in here, offering more services and employing more persons (to handle my problems, hihi!)
To my surprise, he has gone through my blog months ago but its now that
he decided to meet me. He is willing to bring nomad on the social
ground by offering various free services… He assured me that i have
the right to write wat i think in my blog, nothing can prevent me from
expressing my views but through this meeting, he wanted to present
those factors and problems that caused enormous frustrations on the
behalf of nomad users, mostly in the north.
One thing to be noted from this meeting, the problems faced previously by nomad users(me!) are not due to their system but rather by the transmission of data which was handed by MCML.
Since about more than one month, nomad itself is handling all their transmissions with their own equipment and thats why, there are less problems and am happy 😀
A lot, dont know if i can say the amount here, but a lot of transmitters will soon be placed, mostly in the north to ensure 100% coverage, with no black spots.
Most of the problems faced by nomad was due to unfair competition from the main ISP and the authorities, failing to play the role of the Watch Dog.
I think i must send Pif to “prendre la releve!”
The future Of Nomad?
He talked a lot about the future plans of nomad but i cant reveal it here for some reasons but nomad is thinking very huge..
Also, according to him, i may be lucky to participate in some projects.
One of which, may concern the participation of the Mauritian Bloggers or even University students…
But i think that the mauritian bloggers can get the support of nomad to enlarge our community in the near future.
well, lets see wat comes next, but as i repeated a lot of times today,
“mo pas la pu coule nomad”
and since i have been among the first customers of nomad, i have seen how much effort the team is investing to grow bigger and to be able to compete with Mauritius Telecom.
Please note that MT has about 12000 customers and nomad 8000…
thats gr8 for a ‘small’ company…
perhaps for the time being, i will focus on the national tv
Today, my views about nomad have changed a bit when i learnt the rude practices and problems faced due to unfair competition and some illegal practices, ya they exist and nomad has already won some cases in court and more to come in the following month…
