Zimbabwe’s largest Internet Access Providers, Liquid Telecom, has switched its current pricing to US Dollars. It has also effectively increased its RTGS$ prices by 150%.
The 150% increase matches the official interbank exchange rate introduced by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe on 20 February 2019. That exchange rate has however since increased to about 200% against the USD.
Said Liquid Telecom in a statement today:
Liquid Telecom Zimbabwe would like to advise you of a price alignment which will take effect from 5 April 2019.
Pricing for all our products and services will remain unchanged from our existing US Dollar denominated base price when payment is made in US Dollars. When payment is made using the RTGS dollar, the price will be converted at the rate of 2.5.
For more information on how this affects your package, please contact your Account Manager or call 08677 030 000.
We thank you for the continued support and we value your business.
Other telecoms companies have also been increasing internet prices following approval from the sector regulator, POTRAZ.
