Techzim has established that Econet Wireless Zimbabwe is the first mobile network operator to put into effect the new floor prices for mobile data as specified by the telecoms regulator, POTRAZ.


These tariffs, effective from the 11th of January 2017 have effectively raised the cost of internet in Zimbabwe. They also mean some changes to WhatsApp and Facebook bundles, the two most popular broadband packages for local mobile network operators which have also gone up in price.

NetOne and Telecel are also set to raise their tariffs to match the same prices set by POTRAZ, it’s just that Econet was the first to make the changes.


Here’s the complete list of new tariffs as established by Techzim for standard data bundles as well as WhatsApp and Facebook bundles in the table below.

  1. Did I miss anything. The Potraz directive indicate a floor charge of $0.02 per Megabyte of data, which translate to 50MB for $1, 250MB for $5 or 500MB for $10, becore accounting for scale (price per unit declining as volume increases)

    Just look like Econet are simply overcharging and then give us Hyena or crocodile tears by charging $1 for 10MB, and $10 for 300MB. This is a total rip off. If they want to increase their prices, they should not hide behind Potraz

  2. Has anyone figured out that Econet even uses an inverse scale pricing. The more you buy the more you get charged. You are penalised for loyalty or you are penalised for being a better customer….LOL, KKKK. The per megabyte price increases as you buy bigger data bundles. For a sane service provider, it should actually be the reverse. A 10MB bundle cost you $0.1 per megabyte, A 125MB cost you $0.25 per megabyte while a 2.5GB will rise to $0.5 per megabyte……….Yhoooo
