Call it the battle to control the data market taken too far or is it high octave note. According Nation online Safaricom started a ring back tune service which was unveiled on Friday. It will cost subscribers Sh25 per song a month and they get to choose the tunes by sending via SMS the code of the preferred song to 811. This can also be accessed from Skiza?s website www.skiza.com.
The problem is, there is no site called www.skiza.com, ok may be it used to be but as per now the domain is probably there for sale. The site is littered with sponsored links. If you check on the right hand column of the site you will notice sign of “Buy this domain: The domain www.skiza.com may be for sale by its owner”. The same is confirmed by a search for the domain on www.whois.domaintools.com which has the following stats:
IP Locatio: Berlin – Berlin – Sedo Domain Parking
Technical Contact :
83 Friary Park
So why would Safaricom use non existing websites and actually telling consumers to access the songs through the site????
