POTRAZ In A 56.54% Voice, Data & SMS Tariffs Hike

Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe has hiked SMS, Voice and Data tariffs for all Mobile Network Operators, The Herald reports.

In justifying the tariff increments, POTRAZ said the current prices were no longer sustainable to telecoms due to the economic situation in the country.

According to POTRAZ Director General Gift Machengete:

- - - Buy NetOne, Telecel Airtime on WhatsApp using EcoCash.
Send the word Airtime to +263 714 815 229
No extra charges. - - -

Tariff thresholds for telecommunication services were last adjusted in October last year using the August 2019 Telecommunication Price Index (TPI) figures.

The current tariff thresholds have been rendered unsustainable as the operating environment continues to deteriorate due to constantly rising operating costs

Accordingly, the authority has found it necessary to review tariff thresholds for telecommunication services by up to 56,64 percent based on the TPI, for the period October to December 2019 that was computed in consultation with operators

The new tariffs came into effect on Wednesday.
