The last time we saw a material increase in internet prices was last year. Up to now all we have seen are minor adjustments to prices even as black-market rates have increased. The effect has been that ZOL prices had effectively come down from around US$100 for Wibroniks Unlimited when they last adjusted their prices last year to about US75 thanks to a recent surge in black market rates. Well, ZOL has now just effected a price increase and now prices have gone up to around the same level we saw last year in terms of USD equivalent.

Here are the new prices starting 1 October:
