Zimbabwe and regional technology news and updates


ZOL internet is down!

It seems as though all in not well at ZOL. At around 10:12 (it could have been earlier for some) this morning internet connectivity suddenly dropped. On my end I couldn’t load any webpages or use WhatsApp and social media apps.

This doesn’t seem to be an isolated incident because other users in Harare and surrounding towns have also reported the same. Some are saying that there is no internet at all and others are saying that they are still able to use WhatsApp. The customer services number seems to also be down, I tried it a number of times and the number isn’t going through.

We reached out to our sources at ZOL and they said that they were assessing and we will know more when there is any news.

Hopefully, this isn’t something too serious there are a lot of people who are relying on internet services and an outage like this will be costly for ZOL customers.

    1. I have never used their DNS servers and was still facing intermittent issues. So it couldn’t have been that or maybe it was not entirely about just their DNS

      1. Unless you had someone operating on you using a remote controlled medical robot, from the other side of the world, nah.., it is being overly dramatic.

        Loadshedding lasts way longer than that and usually takes your Internet down with it. But, you’d be silly to run around screaming “power has gone”.

        1. Typical Zimbabwean downplaying everything. Also typical is assuming you know the losses some have suffered. The examination example is a case in point. Some people are scrounging to raise fees say for ACCA and boom they cannot write the examination and have to sell a cow to raise more fees if they still have any to sell. Just because you are not greatly affected does not mean you should mock others who have suffered. loss.

  1. Morning, fortunately for me, when i switched on my data this morning the service had been restored,so didn’t experience the outage, lucky me,am i Byo.
