So, Telecel has been pushing the message that their mobile money is cheaper. Just how cheap you must be curious? Well, we just got the Telecash tariff schedule and here’s our quick assessment of it, and comparison with Econet’s EcoCash tariffs below:
- Like EcoCash, cash-ins with Telecash are free. Cash-outs are also free but only for unregistered customers.
- EcoCash is only cheaper on amounts below $1.99 on cash sends to unregistered subscribers. Where a registered subscriber is cashing out, Econet doesn’t charge anything at this amount level whereas Telecash charges 7 cents and 8 cents respectively.
- For all other transaction ranges the Telecash tariff is cheaper by between 7% and as much as 50%.
Here are the comparison tables below. Basically the redder the colour in the difference, the lower the percentage cheaper Telecash is. And the greener the better for you future Telecash subscribers.
The n/a in the difference is where Ecocash is way way cheaper because it’s free.
