In an unusually early Easter present, we have received a directive from Potraz that Econet, Netone ,Telecel, Telone and Africom will today during lunch hour be flying on a zero billing system from 1pm to 2pm, officially dubbed “Happy Hour”
A memo from Potraz was actually signed and confirmed by all the country`s mobile and fixed operators as they join the world to commemorate World Telecommunication Day.
The free lunch hour zone may also see Internet Service Providers following suit, but according to Potraz, they were still to get the document signed by all the country`s 13 service providers.
If the document is signed, Zimbabweans will see Free, unlimited internet access for the three hours a first of its kind in Zimbabwe.
When we contacted mobile operators, they said they are completely in agreement to switch of billing system as they also give back to the community.
We are headed for exciting times and we wait and see how this will turn out! Will our networks support the mass congestion as subscribers are set to jostle for the Happy Hour.
