I was less than impressed the last time Liquid Home contacted me about their new USD data bundles. There was no real temptation, and most people, including me, were forced to stick with our ZWL bundles. Many others were disappointed as well, and Liquid Home listened! They have reduced the cost of their USD data packages, making them more affordable and appealing. I can imagine the bulk of WibroniX users abandoning their ZWL bundles in favour of Liquid’s new USD bundles.
Here are the new prices from WibroniX:
- US$1 gets you 0.5GB
- US$3 gets you 1.75GB
- US$5 gets you 3.5GB
- US$10 gets you 10GB
- US$15 gets you 20GB
- US$50 gets you 100GB
It’s a good thing that these data bundles now start at $1 instead of $30. People appear to be uninterested in night data and would rather have inexpensive data that they can utilise throughout the day. Liquid Home had previously opted to try to entice WibroniX clients with 100% night data allotment, but this did not appear to be very appealing.
A USD uncapped package would be nice
Bundles are something I despise. I’ve had my own internet connection since I was a lanky adolescent, and I’ve never had a capped package. I had my first internet connection back in 2009. It was a ZOL/Liquid Home dial-up connection. Not long after that, I dabbled with Econet’s data line. It was an amazing US$25 for the data buffet. Then I went to PowerTel and then on to Utande/Aptics before returning to ZOL/Liquid Home. Everything in the sake of a flawless unrestricted internet connection.
So it’s a little disheartening that the newest packages don’t provide an uncapped option, or at least a sufficiently high data cap to qualify as such. How about a 1 TB bundle? The connection to their base stations now looks to be capable of 50 Mbps, up from 20 Mbps before the recent platform improvements by Liquid Home. Because of this, they should be able to readily handle any increased demand. I’m sick of having to calculate how much I’m going to pay in USD. Then there are the vexing ZWL pricing fluctuations, which inevitably increase.
