NetOne Reverses Decision To Hike Tariffs After Public Outrage

NetOne Reverses Decision To Hike Tariffs After Public Outrage

NetOne, the second-largest telecommunications company in Zimbabwe, has reversed its decision to hike its tariffs by more than 100 per cent following public outrage.

The state-owned entity reverted to its old One Fi bundle prices as it backtracked on its decision to increase

10GB of data now costs $6 500, with 25GB going for $8 500, 50GB is $12 500 and  $15 000 is needed for 80GB.

NetOne Cellular had yesterday announced that it would be increasing data bundle tariffs today.

This Friday, the 25th of February 2022, NetOne had hiked its tariffs to the effect that:

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

Customers expressed outrage and NetOne responded:

REVIEW OF TARIFFS

In light of the recent tariff reviews, NetOne would like to thank our valued customers for your feedback which is greatly appreciated and is of paramount importance to us. We are in the process of looking into all the concerns that you have raised and we will keep you posted on further developments.

NetOne eventually reverted to old tariffs.

It makes wonder me why Potraz approves such outrageous prices in the first place. Potraz is simply seeking unnecessary attention.

Commission of inquiry or parliamentary committee should ask them how they got to these figures. Here we have a true and proper culprit in this deletion of the Zimbabwe dollar as a currency. Zanu should say, WE HAVE FIUND THE ENEMY, IT IS US!

Maybe their systems cannot accommodate such large figures and they failed to enter the new tariffs into it. They may need to upgrade the servers to effect the increase,as this can take time and resources. Let us enjoy the previous tariffs for the time being.

Too early to celebrate...

This is only a reprieve.
Increases are coming, but maybe not as harsh.

But increases are coming, as sure as the sun will rise tomorrow
