How much to go online? – here are the prices for Zimbabwean internet services

   

Take a look at the calendar, the month of April is as good as over. This means that we have breezed through the first one-third of the year. In local tech and broadband, a lot has come with that passage of time, including a review of voice tariffs.

We all hoped the Government and POTRAZ, the regulator, would jump in and prompt all Internet service providers and broadband merchants to also lower prices. This wasn’t the case. Luckily, the invisible hand of Economics appears to be working in our favour as consumers and since we last took a look at internet packages and prices, some adjustments have been made.

There have been product and price reviews from Powertel and Africom as well as new internet services now available from TelOne in the form of WiFi and Fibre. Nothing has changed from the mobile telecoms operators in terms of price, but the proliferation of very cheap WiFi might just cause a product/price rethink.

So how cheap, or expensive, is to go online in Zimbabwe right now? If you are in Harare (and Victoria Falls) it can be free from a ZOL spot or $1 for 100MB of WiFi from TelOne. These seem to be the best options available for quick access. For home internet, it still looks like its economical to get TelOne ADSL at $25 for 10GB.

Here are most of the internet packages available right now and their prices.
