NetOne Data Bundles Expensive Than Flight To South Africa - Responses Tariff Hikes

NetOne Data Bundles Expensive Than Flight To South Africa - Responses Tariff Hikes

NetOne, the second-largest telecommunications company in Zimbabwe hiked Data, Voice and SMS bundle tariffs on the 25th of February 2022 by margins that shocked many.

Many wrote to the state-owned mobile network operator to check if there were no errors on NetOne’s platform. In response, NetOne would say:

Kindly note that the prices are as indicated on the *171#. Should there be any further developments, we will let you know. Thank you.

New NetOne tariffs are as follows:

  1. One-Fi – 10GB @ $16250
  2. One-Fi Plus – 25GB @ $41700 1400
  3. One-Fi Ultra – 50GB @$81400
  4. One-Fi Extreme – 80GB @ $99000

Valid for one month

In response, some NetOne customers said the new tariffs were outrageous as they were certainly beyond the reach of many Zimbabweans. Pindula News presents some of the responses posted on various social media platforms:

What in the world is this meant to achieve. To think that as a civil servant one earns an average of 25 000 wc means it’s not enough to buy 25gb.

It’s ABSOLUTE Madness!!!

Another one said:

Netone one is a rubbish entity not fit for purposes. People have been bombing them since morning but they’re mum. Surely their PR team must issue a statement to either stand with the pricing or clarify if its an error. But perhaps even they have no data to engage!

Another one said:

Interesting times in Zimbabwe… I have files of about 40 qig to send to South Africa … it’s now cheaper for me to fly to South Africa with hard Drive, leave my documents there and remain with change to do a, bit of shopping than to buy 50 gig NetOne data at $400 USD.

British Airways charges US$259 for a flight from Harare to Johannesburg.

Others suggested that it would be better to buy a King size bed at TV and Home Stores which cost about ZW$99 700.

I REALLY WANT TO THANK THE EMBASSY OF KENYA IN ZIMBABWE FOR THEIR THOUGHTFUL GIFT OF KINDNESS.
NOW MY MAIN ISSUE IS DIRECTED TO THE AUTHORITIES IN ZIMBABWE. FOR QUITE SOME TIME WE HEARD YOU SAYING nyika inovakwa nevene vayo.IS THIS SOME KIND OF A JOKE OR ITS PURE MADNESS. I WONDER IF YOU ADRESS THE RALLIES OR CAMPAIGNING YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT THE WORDS YOU SAY. A GOVERNMENT THAT FAIL TO PROVIDE ITS CITIZENS SOME BASIC LIFE NEEDS IS NOT WORTH VOTING FOR. CLEANING UP THE CITY WILL NOT BE AN ISSUE IF A GOVERNMENT IS IN ITS WORKING ORDER. LET ME GIVE MY INSIGHT INTO THIS SCENARIO.
I WILL RESTRUCTURE THE WHOLE CABINET AND TRIM IT UNTIL WE ARE LEFT WITH ONLY USEFUL AND CORE MINISTRIES THAT CAN RUN THE COUNTRY EFFECTIVELY. THE REST OF THE CRONIES I WILL SEND PACKING. NOW ITS EASY TO SEE WHICH MINISTRY IS NOT PERFORMING WELL AND ALL THE ERRORS WILL BE ACCOUNTED FOR.
ON THE ISSUE OF CLEANING THE TOWNS AND CITIES EVERY YOUTH WHO HAVE AN ID WILL BE REGISTERED AND THEY WILL ALLOCATION OF CHORES AND TASKS FOR THEM. THEY WILL BE A GROUP OF CLEANERS,BUILDERS,WELDERS,ETC THESE YOUTHS WILL BE TASKSED TO DO THE MINOR AND MANDATORY CLEANING REPAIRS AND ECETRA. WHILE THESE YOUTHS GET PAID A WAGE BY THE MINISTRY ALLOCATED TO THEM.
THE OTHER MINISTRY I WILL OPEN IS MINISTRY OF HAPPINESS. THIS MINISTRY WILL MAKE SURE THAT EVERY CITIZEN IS HAPPY.
THERE IS NOTHING HARD IN CLEANING UP WE JUST NEED LEADERS WHO HAVE A PEOPLE AT HEART APPROACH. STOP THE NONSENSE MANTRAS AND GO HO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND RETHINK HOW CAN YOU TACKLE AND ERADICATE POVERTY AMONGST YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS. I WONDER IF YOU AND YOUR MINISTERS ALSO GET PAID IN USELESS ZIM KWACHAS BECAUSE IF IT WAS THE CASE YOU WERE ABLE TO FEEL THE HEAT EVERYONE IS FEELING. BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS MUST BE RESPECTED AND GIVEN TO EVERYONE THATS A FACT. BUT IF A GOVERNMENT FAILS TO DELIVER BASICS THEN IT MEANS IT HAVE FAILED. ZIMBABWEANS DOESN'T NEED MUCH ONLY BASICS THATS ALL. A BANKING SECTOR THAT IS STABLE, AN EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT IS RELIABLE AFFORDABLE, HEALTH SYSTEM THAT WORKS, AFFORDABLE FOOD ON THE TABLE AND PEACE OF MIND THATS ALL. BUT A GOVERNMENT OF ZIMBABWE IS FAILLING TO PROVIDE THAT. ONLY WHAT THEY CRY ABOUT IS SANCTIONS. DONT HIDE WITH A FINGER SANCTIONS ARE TARGETED AT INDIVIDUALS AND A CERTAIN COMPANY CALLED. YOUR PROBLEM IS THAT YOU WANT GOVERNMENT TO DO BUSINESS WITH THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE TARGETED WITH SANCTIONS. LET THOSE MORONS GO PACKING AND SEE IF THE COUNTRY DONT PROSPER.
