This looks like ZOL are banking on the rate “official” rate not taking a massive leap next week before Saturday when these prices take effect. This means that they may more closely following the rate so as top not lose out when it will inevitably go up again.

  1. This is not affordable to many. I personally use 200G a month and my salary is not even enough for the 150G package.

      1. No, updates alone on my phones and computers eat a lot. Besides that how am I going to pay with Ecocash or bank considering these limits.

  2. Fibroniks Family Entertainment Unlimited US$149 ZWL$10,750 and the same package in South Africa is ZAR 699 US$41.82 ZWL2963.97 from MWEB and TELKOM we are being ripped off beyond belief.

  3. You have to remember that the base unlimited package used to cost US$49, the cheapest is now $119, what justifies that?

  4. They have to know that data is now a basic need.they have to make sure everyone affords it.especially in these difficult covid times
