There has been a picture circulating on social media that contains NetOne OneFusion’s new charges.Apparently, this picture is the real deal. We reached to NetOne and got confirmation that these are the new OneFusion packages indeed.

The changes may not be what the OneFussion fans would have wanted though. Take a look at the updated OneFusion service below:

We are yet to confirm when these new rates will be put in place but we will keep you notified as the story develops!

So many reductions

It seems the $3 dollar package is the only one that isn’t changing much. The only shift is that now your $3 will get you less OffNet minutes and SMSs. The other packages have shifted dramatically with the $5,$10 and $20 packages now lasting only 21 days compared to 30 days of before. All the packages have seen dramatic reductions of data as well. For example, the $5 bundle has seen Whatsapp data get slashed by 50%, from 750MB to 300MB. NetOne subscribers may have to change their usage patterns with the more stringent data allocations.

Will this solve the problem?

Those who have called the service ‘One conFusion’ in recent days will be proved right the longer this drags on. NetOne’s initial statement, saw them blame Facebook so it is not yet clear if these changes also mean that they will now also fix the issues of disappearing airtime and the loading of pictures on Whatsapp and Facebook. Whether these issues will now be fixed is yet to be seen but for the sake of both NetOne and customers, we hope they can sort out this mess sooner rather than later.

The rates do seem to be cheaper than Econet’s bundles so I guess NetOne users may put up with this blow if the real problem is actually addressed.

What do you think of the new OneFusion rates? Let us know in the comments below

  1. $5 fusion valid for 21 days??? What the heck Netone?? So I have to buy twice a month when before my $5 fusion lasted the whole 30 days?? Looks like I’m going back to Econet. Stupid decision netone. Very very stupid!!! It was better the way it was. Nxxaaaaa

    1. You’re not going anywhere – coz even though they have soured the deal, Econet doesn’t have anything that comes close to one fusion in terms of value. If you just wanna go back to prove a point it’s a rather costly point to prove.

      1. I agree. people will be angry at the news but leaving mayn’t be a wiser option seeing that no network goes that far, Telecel has it but network coverage!

  2. This is a polite way of chasing customers. Am not happy with such a move. they should have consulted us first before implementation. This is just rubbish.

  3. I think I would have been content with reductions in data quantities but on duration it’s a no for me, they have just lost a customer of more than 18 months

    1. how many wifi hotspots are there? I wouldn’t want to use my phone at a public place far away from home or workplace just for the wifi! so one fusion will stay!

  4. Dear Netone faithfulls, Sorry for the inconvenience caused. We must point out the following facts to you: Under the new dispensation all state Enterprises are required to make profits. Secondly we have borrowed a lot of money to upgrade our network from the Chinese and this money has to be paid from profits. We are no longer a public relations entity for the government and the party. Asante sana

    1. @Mwalimu I send you… Honestly why define making a loss as offering value to customers???

  5. The honeymoon had to end sometime. It was too good to be held true, or should I say, it was not sustainable. Economic reality always trumps political expediency. A new dispensation indeed!

  6. I for one will like most of you use 2 Sims anyway… Will just continue using both… Netone still has far more to offer than Econet…. These are sour grapes… Just put the line on the side cause with the Econet prices you’ll surely be back

  7. Even after the reduction, NetOne packages STILL OVERALLY OFFERS BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY if “you your area is covered by NetOne 4G service”

  8. People, lets be honest. Fine, they’ve cut the bundles and it sucks, but they are still the better value bundles. What i wish they would do however, is to improve the actual network. The main reason i have stuck to Econet is that i don’t have the network issues that come with having an Econet or Telecel line, and I’ve tried them. But if the network works out fine for others, its better to stick with it. And considering that for me to get the same worth as anyone with a Netone line, say, the $5 one fusion, I have to spend possibly close to $12 to get the same value, and it’ll only last a week, maybe with the whatsapp lasting the month, but with limited downloading. Honestly, the only thing Netone subscribers really should be crying about is poor and slow network speeds.

  9. Are they up-to-date with their license payments. I’m sure Econet can also reduce prices if they can be allowed to defer millons of dollars expenses. Stop comparing the two, ndapota.

  10. i will pu the line back in the drawer Those terms were the reason I would endure their slow speeds and congestion. With the penetration of ZOL I would rather use Zol at home and econet data elsewhere.

  11. it is very inconsistent and violates customer/client contract. we cannot honestly be paying net one $20 every 21 days ……that means we have to all buy an extra $3 to last a month? haikona kutinyenga brain ne losses dzenyu its your management problem …give us better or we just go back to strive kwatabva

  12. This is not acceptable at all, how can they slash data in half and at the same time reduce the validity period to 21 days? Seriously? By by one fusion, going back to econet with better network and better speed. I can’t endure buying one fusion package twice in a single month. There is no more value with your package any more, I bet you will loose a considerable number of loyal customers. This is BETRAYAL and I can’t condone such a thing

  14. Netone please reverse the validity period to 30 days and retain all other changes. We will know how to manage our data and stay with you.

  15. how is it possible to have a 21 days /3 week bundle let t be a week or a monthly bundles net one you’re going to lose much customers by doing this

  16. Less than a year after introducing OneFi and selling us costly modems, they quadruple the tariffs and we have no say whatsoever. I’m taking my, and the other 16 customers I have referred, business elsewhere. A bit of consultation with their customers or warning would have been appreciated but we’re obviously not that important to them.

  17. Still a good deal,i make a lot of calls and end up juicing after 3 weeks anyway… econet is terrible and has given us a raw deal for ages; i will stick with Netone.
