In a shocking move, TelOne has just announced that they are suspending their data rollover facility. The rollover facility was only introduced in March of this year two years after ZOL who introduced their own form of rollover in 2019. With a rollover, you would get an extra 30 days to use up your leftover data provided you made another purchase in the same ensuing month.

In their announcement suspending data rollover TelOne blamed technical issues that made it not worthwhile to continue to offer the facility. It’s not clear how ZOL does it or whether they use the same software as TelOne. Also, TelOne were at pains to point out that this change will only be affecting new bundle purchases. Below is the full text of the notice:

    Dissapointed? Yes. Surprised? No…TelOne is just about to end a VERY well received feature that their clients absolutely loved. Very soon TelOne is going to run out feet to shoot itself in! Time to start shopping around for a service provider that actually listens to its customers

    Sad development. Telone has been fairly dependable in these times of online learning as well business. Guess one has to migrate to other service providers who offer data rollover. Such is life in Zim

    I think I have to leave TelOne. This sucks and is very arrogant of them. Just when one though they had cleaned their ears, they decide to plug them again.
