4 years ago 

NetOneNetOne, the state owned mobile operator, today started an advertising campaign for the coming launch of internet services on its network. The adverts promise NetOne is going to deliver “the world like you’ve never seen or heard it”.

NetOne is the only mobile operator currently not offering mobile broadband. Econet and Africom both launched mobile broadband services in September 2010. Telecel opened mobile broadband to the public this year in February.

There’s has been talk since the year started that NetOne is working on a broadband offering to catch up with the other mobile operators. NetOne’s network coverage rivals that of Econet, the biggest mobile operator in Zimbabwe by number of subscribers, so introducing internet services on their network is a big deal.

There’s no information yet on how the broadband services will priced but we assume it’s going to be something around what Telecel is charging. Either that or subscribers won’t even bother signing up for the services.

  1. If my experience with Powertel is anything to go by! And if Powertel and Netone actually share the same Netone building in down town Harare! That pretty much says it all for me. No thank you!!! I am sticking with Africom and Telecel for a long, long time. Besides the market is now awash with much more credible competitors than the Powertel-Netone duo. And I say duo because I am quite certain the two share the same infrastructure and business mindset.

  2. HAPANA CHAKANONOKERWA APA I AM ACTUALLY LOOKING FOWARD TO NETONE BROADBAND REMEMBER THEY PROMISED IT IN 2007 WHEN THEY REBRANDED.WHAT WITH LATEST TECHNOLOGY FROM NOKIASIEMENS AND HUAWEI EQUIPMENT WHICH NET ONE USES I WOULD LIKE TO COMPARE SPEEDS.
