So quite a few people have noticed that somewhere along their One Fusion experience WhatsApp calling mysteriously stops working, this is happening to One Fusion subscribers on the $5 and $10 plans but as far as we have gathered it’s the same case on all of NetOne’s One Fusion products.
So what is going on?
On One Fusion 5, you get you get 300mb of mobile data, 700mb for WhatsApp and 900mb for Facebook. On One Fusion 10, you get a much healthier mobile data allowance of 800mb and Unlimited social media access as illustrated below.
However, it seems as though once your mobile data runs out on any of the One Fusion products your ability to make WhatsApp voice calls also stops.
We’ve also noticed that your mobile data is first exhausted before you actually start to use the social media bundles, and that is why you only realise that WhatsApp calling has stopped working midway through the month.
So all the WhatsApp calls you previously made were on mobile data and not on WhatsApp bundles, which do not allow WhatsApp calling at all!
Why would NetOne do this?
Well, as part of the OneFusion they offer their voice service which allows you to make Net One to Net One calls as well as Calls to other networks.
So, we would assume that NetOne would want its subscribers to at least use their voice service for calls while using the social media bundles for all other communication.
Do you even notice?
When you’re on OneFusion 5 you will probably notice that you can’t make WhatsApp calls in a week or two, but it really depends on how much internet you use outside of social media.If you’re someone that uses their One Fusion 5 or 10 to stream movies or watch videos on YouTube your bound to run out of data before you 30 day period expires, so it really boils down to how you manage your data usage.
We still think One Fusion is your best bet for staying online which is becoming a huge expense by the day, but it too requires some kind of management. Once you have exhausted your mobile data bundle, One Fusion performance drops quite dramatically which gives us reason to believe social media is throttled quite extensively.
In the end, we seem to be paying for the mobile data, that’s where the real One Fusion experience is.
