According to leaked minutes of a Telecommunications Operators Association of Zimbabwe meeting held in October 2016, Econet, Telecel and NetOne all met to discuss the issue of floor pricing for both data and voice as per their invitation by POTRAZ to make submissions on the issue.
By the end of the meeting, all mobile operators had agreed on one thing, data would be priced at $0.05/Mb which would put 1GB of mobile data at over $50.
Of interest, however, is our mobile operator’s final suggestion on the issue of floor pricing which reads:
Members also agreed that any floor price adopted must also apply to other operators including ISPs (Internet Service Providers)
Techzim is yet to find out whether POTRAZ took this request into consideration and if it will set the same floor pricing of $0.02/MB on ISPs and will update once communication is made.
