All the good things come to an end, but yeah like ZOL said the best things are for free, but not anymore as the covid induced economic crunch continues to bite the world.
ZOL has stopped the free 30 minutes of internet access that were accessible through various ZOLspot locations planted all over the country.
This was a major move, connecting basically anyone for those critical 30min per day to by pressing matters or simple online check ups.
ZOL initially started off by offering 60 minutes free internet access for years and later reduced it to 30 minutes before removing the option of free access and yet to give a public notice.
However it seems the service is now officially gone as most sites we checked are no longer offering the free option, running only the paid option for the service
Many users have however reacted to the removal of the free access via Zol twitter handle:
“It is sad to see it go but it’s hard not to sympathise with ZOL. Things aren’t good these days for any business. And I can imagine that they could no longer afford to have that free service up. It seems like the drive now is to get as many people as possible to pay for their services as possible.”
