One Comment on “Zimbabwe Has The Lowest Mobile Data Tariffs In The Region?

  1. A preposterous, ill-informed and baseless comparison. In reaching such conclusions, one need to consider affordability in terms of per capita income, salaries, poverty, unemployment rates. If we take into account such factors, and bearing in mind that Zim is one of the poorest and unhappiest countries in the world, then its tariff rates may be the highest in the world in real and not paper terms.
