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.
Whatsapp groups are also alight with reports of Econet’s mobile internet services just having ghosted for more than an hour.
At the moment it is unclear what the cause of the outage could be, but we have reached out to Econet Wireless Zimbabwe for more information.
