TelOne, Zimbabwe’s State-owned fixed telecoms operator recently lowered the prices of its fibre to the home packages, bringing down the cost of a basic residential fibre connection to $23.
This wasn’t the only change, though. Its ADSL lineup has also been revised with the retirement of its $15/ 4GB package. It also increased the speeds and data limits on its two remaining ADSL packages.
The $25 Home Plus package now offers 30 GB (with speeds of up to 3 Mbps) up from 20 GB (with speeds of 1 Mbps). The $42 Home Premier package’s data limit has been increased by 10 GB and now offers 60 GB (with speeds of up to 4 Mbps, an increase from 2 Mbps limit).
With internet usage patterns having undergone a natural change brought on by the increased consumption of data-intensive content in the form of live and on-demand video as well as images, TelOne’s data allowance increase ought to put smiles on subscribers faces.
It also increases TelOne ADSL’s value proposition against expensive data alternatives like mobile broadband and manages to position limited ADSL packages like the $42/60 GB Home Premier option as a suitable option for subscribers looking for an internet package that can accommodate VOD services like Netflix and Showmax.
