Qubee is the customer facing brand of Augere, the wireless broadband business founded in 2007 by the former CEO of Orange, Sanjiv Ahuja. It has a mission to provide ‘broadband for all’ and is working to bring available, affordable and accessible broadband internet services to underserved communities worldwide.
Qubee has so far been launched in Pakistan in July 2009 and in Bangladesh in October 2009. [Wikipedia]
Launched a year back, Qubee is yet unable to make an impact on local wireless internet market, largely dominated by Mobilink and Wi-tribe.
Recently Qubee revitalized its promotional campaign, all charged-up to take a chunk of market share. As I was looking for a backup internet connection, I thought to give Qubee a decent try. However, after submitting online contact form twice to no avail, I paid a visit to local Qubee outlet. The CSR told me that it takes more than week to receive feedback of online contact form submission. If this is true, and it could be judging from the response I had, Qubee should better remove that from its website.
For now, it seems that Qubee is throwing the marketing money in flush and is not seriously interested in acquiring customers.
