NetOne, the local mobile network operator has been feeling a bit generous these past few months.
After launching OneFusion, a comprehensive services package (and clearly the best package in mobile services right now) and later tweaking it with additional data, the State owned operator has just unveiled a new data plan for daily, weekly and monthly bundles.
For a minimum of 50 cents subscribers can receive 50 MB of data, $1 gets 300 MB daily bundles, or 150 MB weekly with the biggest allocation being 5GB of data for a $5 daily bundle.
The bundles appear to be some form of reintroduction of the daily bundles that NetOne suspended last month, with some adjustments that include options for extended vailidity periods (weekly and monthly) as well as higher priced options.
The new bundles effectively square up against daily, weekly and monthly packages offered by NetOne’s biggest competitor, Econet Wireless.
When paired with the OneFusion package these bundles are a great way to access a generous amount of data at a discount, something that day bundles have been popular for anyway.
However, on closer inspection some of the bundles are actually eclispsed by their bigger brother, OneFusion.
The premium bundle, set at $10 offers 1,1 GB worth of monthly data which isn’t much of sweet offer considering that for the same price OneFusion offers 800 MB of data long with unlimited WhatsApp, Facebook and Twitter.
the same can be said for the $5 monthly bundle that has 550 MB of data which is easily outpaced by the OneFusion $5 package that has 300MB together with WhatsApp and Facebook access.
Then again, this could all just be structured to beat Econet’s own daily, weekly and monthly bundles that are way less generous.
