Dr. Gift Machengete, POTRAZ Director General
A report in the state owned daily publication, The Herald, says POTRAZ is currently “evaluating local data charges and major cost drivers amid indications the cost of data in Zimbabwe is too high.”
This apparently follows reports last year that Zimbabwe has the third highest internet data charges in Africa after South Sudan and Swaziland.
Said POTRAZ director general on the issue:
In our studies we assess where we are compared to the region and why we are where we are. The issue of data, that it is expensive (in Zimbabwe) is something that I am personally interested in. I am looking into that, to say how possible is it in terms of making sure that data is affordable in the country?
