NetOne, Zimbabwe’s second largest mobile network operator also made adjustments to its own broadband lineup. It recently placed data caps on its social media bundles.
This means that daily, weekly and monthly bundles for Over the Top services like Facebook and WhatsApp now have a data limit on them. Daily bundles have a 20 MB cap, Weekly bundles are limited to 80 MB and monthly bundles – 225 MB.
OneFusion, NetOne’s integrated voice, SMS and data package will maintain its unlimited offer for bundles priced at $10 or more.
The data caps bring a Fair Usage Policy to the only social media bundles across all three mobile networks that still gave subscribers unlimited access to the most popular applications in Zimbabwe. As expected this has disappointed subscribers, which might be the reason why NetOne quietly made the change.
Users only found out via SMS notifications delivered after purchasing a bundle. For that unlimited WhatsApp or Facebook experience, the only refuge from any MNO in Zimbabwe is OneFusion.
