We have always known Telecel to be the leader in terms of pricing specials for both voice and data so it’s a bit surprising to see that the MNO has adjusted the price of its data bundles with an increase.
The new tariff structure (displayed in the table above) offers subscribers lower data for the same prices on the cheaper bundles, ultimately reducing the value of a subscriber’s dollar. The 50 cents, $1 and $3 bundles are the three bundles that have been tweaked with slightly lower data offerings.These minor adjustments are what Telecel communicated recently as the response to new taxes on airtime.
The changes have been met with some unfavourable responses from subscribers complaining on social networks. Sadly for mobile internet users instead of receiving more enticing deals for broadband, there doesn’t look like any relief is in sight, especially since the regulator POTRAZ has come out stating that it will let market forces regulate the pricing rather than force reductions.
What sort of mobile broadband pricing do you think the mobile networks should be offering?
