Econet Wireless, which is by far the country’s largest mobile network operator (MNO), has announced an increase in the prices for voice, out of bundle data, SMSes and SMS bundles with effect from the 7th of September.
This tariff increase follows up on the 60% price hike for data bundles that Econet unveiled earlier this week.
Econet increasing tariffs (for voice, out of bundle data, and SMSes) isn’t much of a surprise as POTRAZ earlier this week gave mobile network operators the go-ahead.
