We have been seeing reports that Econet mobile internet services went completely off sometime this afternoon. It’s unclear at the moment if this is a nationwide blackout because there are some people who responded to our call on Twitter saying that Econet mobile data was working on their end.

  1. Telone went down at around the same time as econet for me… I’m still unable to connect using telone

  2. This econet thing. No notification or form of communication on the issue. Had to dive to network to complete my online assignment

  3. My econet data was off from about 5pm till after 6. It’s back now but I am on zol fibroniks at the moment

  4. I was in the process of about to send out an invoice from my QuickBooks system when boom network gone. Tried to troubleshoot my phone network settings, no success there. Tried calling customer care, good luck there…all I learned was the promo ads they had to offer.

  5. I like the way when a network outage occurs, it is at if people were going to die. But, if you have load shedding that knocks out your connectivity, or the government shuts you off for days, it’s crickets. 😂

  6. I reside in Eastlea, Harare, and Econet data services has been appalling for well over a year now. In spite of my persistent and best efforts to report the problem and have it rectified the situation remains unchanged. I would be generous in referring to Econet’s service as Third World at best .

  7. I’ve been using the 10usd private Wi-Fi and it’s been working well for me up until last week.My 2gig off peak completely doesn’t work,I now have about 5 gig that is not working.Thus is appalling please do something.

  8. Econet internet speed in Avonlea is atrocious very bad service from a company which prides itself as the biggest ISP in the country

  9. Looks as if Econet can not surmount problems on their network. So disappointing! You buy bundles and you fail to use them up due to shambolic network connectivity. Most times bundles expires without being used up due to very inconsistent network connectivity.

    Econet should rather hold back on fighting useless promotions and those meaningless adverts and sort out their network first. Boasting about being the largest network drives them into complacency while their standards of service are plummeting so badly

  10. Data interoperability anyways it is defined as “the ability of systems and services that create, exchange and consume data to have clear, shared expectations for the contents, context, and meaning of that data.” Basically, data interoperability means data held in different formats and locations can be used together.

  11. Econet Service has been pathetic since the introduction of those USD based Wi-Fi bundles. For Telone 10gig I can last a whole week but for Econet I’ll be lucky to last 3 days. We need more mobile broadband providers, the current ones are too expensive and very unreliable yet the shareholders are making millions.

  12. I have been trying to purchase a $7 USD bundle since yesterday afternoon, but nothing is working at all.
