Shock, anger, dismay, slow acceptance, progress. No, this isn’t just the emotional cycle of someone who supports a struggling English football team, it’s what Zimbabwean mobile broadband subscribers have lived through.
As long as your device can access WiFi, you can access, from these spots, relatively fast internet that doesn’t have throttling issues. Even though we no longer have free WiFi hotspots after ZOL attached a charge to its service, there are different providers that have put hotspots in different parts of Zimbabwe.
We have listed below, the different WiFi hotspots and the cost of the WiFi service for three providers, Africom, Telco and Telone. At the time of publishing, we hadn’t been given the hotspot map for ZOL, but we have attached the price list and validity periods of its WiFi vouchers.
One clear observation is that there aren’t enough WiFi hotspots outside Harare. Hopefully with the increasing competition these operators will address the rest of Zimbabwe.
