Dandemutande subsidiary Utande Internet Services has announced through an email to customers that it will be billing its LTE packages in USD from the first of April 2022.
The statement from Utande/Dandemutande’s CEO Never Ncube to customers reads as follows:

We hope this letter finds you well. We consider your choosing Utande as your LTE services provider an honour, and thank you for your continued support.
However, the current operating environment continues to be in a state of constant flux. Among the major effects of doing business under such conditions is undoubtedly the rising cost in procuring equipment and service delivery, particularly for those with embedded USD components. We have always endeavoured to cushion our customers from the price shocks we face by absorbing what we can of these cost increases.
Despite our best attempts to mitigate these challenges, we write to advise that effective 1 April 2022, all LTE services will be billed in USD instead of ZWL This will ensure that we continue providing the quality service and support which have now become the hallmarks of our brand.

So what does this mean?
We reached out to Utande/Dandemutande for a comment on how this will affect customers and this is what they had to say
Utande Internet Services adjusts LTE Billing to USD
We write to advise that effective 1 April 2022, all our LTE services will now be billed in USD. Utande LTE services are advertised in USD therefore this change is also for alignment purposes. However, this does not mean that ZWL payments will not be allowed for those who wish to pay in this currency.
