We were warned back in August that this was coming but we were still not prepared. Liquid Home, Zimbabwe’s largest internet service provider is going to be hiking their ZWL bundle prices starting 1 November. The price adjustments will be quite a blow to a lot of households as salaries have not been keeping up with spiralling inflation. On their part, Liquid Home will argue that they are also dealing with increased operating costs, especially in the light of massive ZESA power cuts that is forcing companies to use generators to keep base stations on.
