It has only been three weeks since Econet hiked their data and SMS bundle tariffs. Telecel soon followed suit but NetOne’s tariffs stayed the same.

Well, we woke up to news of NetOne telling its subscribers that tariffs are set up to go tomorrow (8 August). Econet were feeling left behind I suppose so they have started sending out messages to customers:

Dear Customer. Please take note bundle prices for Data & SMS will be reviewed Effective 9 Aug 2019. Dial 143# to buy Data or *140# to buy SMS Bundles.

Expect another price hike

Mobile Network Operators like to use euphemisms like review when in actual fact they mean another, and the latest price hike. It has been years since prices of anything were reviewed downwards so don’t expect anything to change.

You would be wise to expect a significant rise as has been the norm.
