The big NetOne $1 per day may be finally coming home to roost after slashing the beloved 30 minutes free talk time, during peak hours and continued to limit it to lesser minutes , a major shift from the original promotion which initially used to offer 1hr free talk time during peak hours.
Previously NetOne had 30 minutes free talk time of intra calls and they lasted from 06:00 till 23:59 for the dollar you could also get 5 SMS as well as 1MB of data.
NetOne has also introduced the new social media recharge cards, a move which they want to simplify life for their subscribers who may not necessarily be fans of the long USSD codes to buy and and convert bundles.
We are not so sure if these targeted subscribers are 40years and below as they seem to be clearing a technological barrier for people who may necessarily not be tech savvy at a cost of introducing scratch cards which ofcourse ultimately makes the whole process a lot faster.
Some subscribers here and there may have highlighted that the all in one USSD code which *171# really makes the process long and also keeps the network unnecessarily busier, hence probably they drove the point home.
however they have highlighted that you get 166MB as well as extra 100MB of NetOne video and picture downloads. The same applies for Facebook you get the very same values as that of Whatsapp.
They seem to have forgotten other popular social media such as their twitter bundles and Instagram to cater for everyone.
This move makes it easier and eliminates all the hassle of having to follow the USSD codes in the process of purchasing social media bundles
