NetOne Cellular customers will breath a short sigh of relief after it emerged that the mobile network operator has delayed its data price increase by few more days, TechnoMag can exclusively reveal.
Sources around the development stated that NetOne will increase their tariffs by not more than 60% of the current price.
The increase in data tariffs by the state owned telecommunications company was planned to take effect from today (Wednesday 06 May 2020) . In a statement NetOne had posted:
“Dear Value Customer,
Please be advised that NetOne will be reviewing its bundle prices effective 6 May 2020,” reads the company’s public notice.
However, in a latest development, TechnoMag is reliably informed that the increase has been delayed until Friday.
Whilst Econet Wireless Zimbabwe has already effected it’s data price adjustment as according to POTRAZ regulations by more than 200%, NetOne is rumoured to be increasing by not more than 60% – making it one of the most affordable mobile network operators in the country.
According to a source privy to the going-ons, the move is aimed at competitively pricing the company’s data packages.
Meanwhile, Telecel Zimbabwe which apparently has found the going tougher is yet to make a statement around data price adjustments.
