Earlier this week Econet effected a series of hikes to their data bundles. While it was their Private WiFi bundle that garnered all the headlines when it saw a 225% hike from $400 ZWL to a whooping $1 300 ZWL it is by no means the only bundle that got a hike. The popular monthly WhatsApp bundle saw its price being increased from $53 ZWL to $85 ZWL.

Econet also fiddled with its daily social media bundles. Included in the changes was the introduction of a new daily WhatsApp bundle that goes for$1.00 ZWL. Before you get too excited you should know the bundle comes with a paltry 4 MB of data. Unless one disables media downloads on WhatsApp such a bundle would not last very long. The bundle is complimented by old and familiar 12MB,20MB and 45MB daily bundles.

Another change is the fact that Econet no longer charges the same amount for bundles of different services. Before this latest change bundles of the same size would attract the same price regardless of what service they were meant for. For example, both Snapchat and WhatsApp weekly bundles went for $19 for the 140MB bundle. Now the WhatsApp and Facebook bundles are more expensive.
