Ethiopia: The Internet Service Provider Which Does Not Use Internet

Ethio Telecom provides Internet service but it does not use the Internet: “The only media Ethio telecom use internet is via its webpage, which is down most of the time and actually doesn’t have any vital content in it. It never gets updated regularly too. The telecom never owns a twitter, Facebook page, a blog, forum, technology showroom, online support, networked customer service and not even standard traditional media strategies.”
