ZOL has announced yet another price increase which doesn’t come as much of a surprise considering just how the local currency has weakened over the last 2 weeks.

The new pricing for ZOL’s packages is now structured as follows:

Wibroniks UnlimitedUnlimited$3,105
Fibroniks Zoom10GB (Pay As You Go)$191

100GB30 days + 30 days rollover$2,088

ZOL’s previous Wibroniks price adjustment was announced in April and before that there was an increment for Fibroniks back in March. It seems monthly adjustments are becoming the norm for Internet Service providers and telecoms companies who are struggling to deliver service in the current economic environment.

Whilst, we understand the plight of service providers its important to note that consumers are also living in that same environment making it extremely difficult for most to afford the service.

As people ditch luxuries such as internet connectivity – the increasing price of internet is spread among less consumers making it harder to afford for the few who are paying for the service.

  1. Considering the rate of increases of everything and the hard currency rate as well I think this increase isn’t too bad. I was paying ZWL402 now and will now pay Fibroniks Lite 40GB (Pay As You Go) $522. At parallel market rates that an increase of USD2. I was expecting a lot worse. This I can work with

    1. Unfortunately for some of us, that us2 increase has to come off my us20 salary using the current parrarel market rate. So u can jus imagine

  2. not bad,am still able to use 10usd per month. saka bhoo.ndivo vadiiiko,all else is being udjustsed up on a daily basis.

  3. Ts nt tht bad coz i used to buy my 15G equivalent to 10us still ts the sem so if they increase according to the market increase ts nt bad all

  4. If this increase will maintain the current service levels…i support.Zol service is very good and working from home has made me appreciate the consistency in delivery.

  5. Hi, May you help me on general information about Zol sim cards for mobile phone. I need one, how can I get it?
