Recently NetOne released its “The One” mobile internet data bundle product.
It is arguably the best mobile internet data plan available right now.
We realized the impact of NetOne’s product after some of our WhatsApp group‘ members expressed interest in migrating to the “One” family.
We were also shocked to witness one our TechZim team members make the bold move to NetOne LTE.
With this is mind, we decided to compare daily, weekly and monthly bundles available to subscribers across all mobile network operators (gsm) as of today and these were our findings:
|Net One||60 Mb||300 Mb||1 Gb||5 Gb||N/A|
|Econet||50 Mb||250 Mb||1 Gb||N/A||N/A|
|Telecel||N/A||300 Mb||1 Gb||N/A||N/A|
|Net One||N/A||150 Mb||300 Mb||750 Mb||1,5 Gb|
|NetOne||102 Mb||210 Mb||330 Mb||550 Mb||1,1 Gb|
|Econet||10 Mb||N/A||75 Mb||125 Mb||300 Mb|
|Telecel||9,5 Mb||N/A||76 Mb||142,5 Mb||305 Mb|
To Access NetOne bundle dial: *171#
To Access Econet bundle dial: *143#
To Access Telecel bundle dial: *470#
It was surprising to find out that currently, Econet and Telecel do not have weekly data bundle offerings.
It is quite evident that NetOne is leading the mobile data pack.
To add insult to injury, NetOne had previously released its hit One Fusion product.
Econet’s inability to respond to NetOne’s product raises a fair bit of concern and suspicion.
It goes against Econet traditions accustomed to either lead the pack or offer strong comebacks.
We are yet to see how and if Econet and Telecel respond to NetOne.
