Three customers on Friday walked away with the prestigious cash prizes at the “Connected for Good” promotion organized by E-Networks, Guyana’s leading provider of television, internet, entertainment, ICT and media services.
Each winner received $ 50,000 cash and a hamper from Survival Supermarket.
They were selected from a long list of customers who signed up for E-Networks’ 4G and 5G internet service between November 31 and December 20, 2020.
The winners – Joy Sullivan, Mathew Robinson, and Negrie Wharton – were highly praised by E-Networks; they were all amazed when contacted and told that they had won the grand prize.
The trio received their awards Friday at the company’s Camp Street location from Marketing Coordinator Ashley John.
John told the Newsroom that there were also weekly prizes of vouchers from GuyOil, Survival Supermarket and Courts that benefited an additional 16 people.
“Reliable and affordable internet is very important and we wanted to be able to offer that to our customers while at the same time saying thank you for our choice,” he said.
Sullivan, who described the service as “value for money”, said she plans to use her earnings to help prepare for the reopening of her COVID-19 closed Day Care.
Craig, an EBD resident with the service at her home for more than a month now, said she has no complaints and praised the customer service offered by E-Networks.
Meanwhile, Wharton who is still shocked at best said the cash prize comes at a very good time as his daughter’s private school fees are due.
He hails from Castello’s West La Penitence Housing Scheme and also said the service worked well for him and his neighbors.
Back in September 2020, E-Networks announced exciting additions to its internet options for homes and businesses.
Earlier in 2020, E-Networks introduced a 4G network in Georgetown, from Enmore to Grove, and at Parfaite Harmonie. This network provided 20 Mbps of home internet service at a very affordable price point of $ 8,990 per month (VAT inclusive).
In line with the company’s commitment to continue to improve services to its customers, E-Networks has expanded the broadcast area to include Cornelia Ida, Schoonord and Tuschen, as well as unveiling its new 5G service – the first of its kind in Guyana.
