I went on ZOL’s website yesterday and I was met with a new development. The Internet Service Provider (ISP) now has US$ pricing for each and every one of the packages listed on the site.

It seems paying in US$ is actually more expensive since the prices listed on ZOL’s website are using a ZW$:US$ rate of 57.35. This was the “official rate” 3 weeks ago but no longer reflects the official auction-rate which now lies at 68.89.

If you’re getting your US$ from the parallel market (which most people do) the rate there is around 80-84 and thus it is much cheaper to just keep paying for the packages in RTGS unless you have money to burn – pun definitely not intended.

PS: It might be that ZOL’s website is out of date and they’ve since adjusted those figures in-store to match the current rates. But at the time of writing that’s what’s on the site.
