[Updated] Telecel Reviews Data Bundles: Cheaper Daily Bundles But Weekly & Monthly Data Gets More Expensive

looking at phone

Recently, Econet shifted their data prices upwards and though Telecel has reviewed their daily data bundles, their changes are more palatable and welcome for subscribers.

The new changes here are the additions of the $4 bundle and $7 which get subscribers 800 MB and 1.5GB. These are extremely competent bundles as Econet’s 750 MB bundle costs $7.50 whilst $4 on Telecel gets you 800MB. In fact, Telecel’s 1.5GB bundle costs (for $7) less than Econet’s 750 MB.


Whilst the prices are appealing you’ll have to keep in mind the fact Telecel’s network coverage is the weakest in the country so you’ll have to know if 4G is available in your area before taking the leap and throwing away your Econet line.

Whilst the cheaper data is welcome, it’s not clear what the impact of this will be on the network considering that local networks are running on generators for 14-18 hours every day. Whether Telecel’s pricing will be a wise decision will only be clear in the long haul.

[Update] Telecel has gone on to review their Weekly and Monthly data bundles as well (You could have just sent out one Tweet, Telecel!):

The weekly bundles now have a lower entry as the 100 MB point didn’t exist prior to the review. There have also been some pricing adjustments; $5 used to buy 320 MB, now it’s only enough for 200 MB.

The monthly packages continue to be the most expensive and have seen a price increase:

  • 600MB goes from $10 to $14
  • 1300MB goes from $20 to $27
  • 3300MB goes from $50 to $67
  • 5000MB goes from $75 to $100

  1. Haaa Techzim this is embarrassing these bundles have been there for over two months now, there’s nothing new they have reviewed all other packages except the daily bundles…….. Come on guys this is embarrassing

      If the statement “these bundles have been there for over two months now” is referring to the bundles introduced in April, those didn’t include the 800MB and 1.5GB packages and you can find the link to that article here:
      If after that announcement Telecel introduced these bundles without announcing then I missed that but as of today from Telecel’s Twitter account. They are saying these are new.
      I hope everything is clear now.

      1. You missed them, they have been there for a while now and I’ve been using them coz they introduced them a few weeks after that April announcement

        1. I guess the article will just apply to non Telecel subscribers who didn’t know of that. Thanks
