Econet data bundle prices have been increased to match the prices set by the other mobile network operators. For whatever reason Econet lagged behind the other two (NetOne and Telecel) but this increase puts Econet in and around the same prices as the other two.

New Econet data bundle prices are as follows:

Things to note

  • Sasai bundle prices seemed to be unaffected by this price change. It is still ZWL$2.00 for 20MB for a Sasai.
  • Econet seems to have removed the hourly bundle offering which was implemented last month.
  • Econet has also not increased the prices for SMS bundles.
  • Bundles of Joy have also been unaffected by the price hike.

    Its better, when they align its much better. We know the cause of these price increases. Nyika iyii haaaaayaaa. Pakaipa guys. I heard that Millers are also battling with the Gvt to increase their prices & the Gvt is refusing. Worse still bakers.
