Constantly evolving, constantly breaking new ground constantly innovating, ZOL Zimbabwe this year launched its lowest priced fibre package; Fibroniks Lite, in an aim to make quality connectivity accessible and affordable to all.
The launch of the package coincided with the launch of ZOL’s dynamic new consumer-centric website that features a vibrant design and a clean layout to guide visitors through the internet service provider’s (ISP) many dynamic services.
The cost of internet connectivity is a hindrance for the wider availability of Internet connections in Africa, a trend that ZOL aims to combat. According to the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ), Fibre – the fastest of connections – accounts for just 0.21% of subscriptions in Zimbabwe with mobile internet making up 95.6% of total internet subscriptions.
The internet is becoming much more than just a tool, it is a fundamental part of society. By combining its unrivalled speeds and excellent customer service with a game-changing price tag of $29, ZOL aims to ensure that high-speed and high quality internet becomes a basic right for everyone.
The $29 per month entry-level package includes:
Unmatched speeds within its price range
ZOLphone cordless handset
Free ZOL-ZOL Calls
$2 free ZOL minutes per month (national calls only)
The package is available to users in Harare, Bulawayo and Victoria Falls within areas that fibre is already laid.
Benefits include a cordless ZOLphone handset offering customers the best low cost phone service nationwide, with calls starting from as little as 0.10c per minute.
Not content with the upgrades, and in a move intended to address the current economic climate for its customers, ZOL have also introduced an auto-connect function. Should a client’s account be suspended due to lack of payment, their account will be reconnected automatically if payment is made within seven days. A move that has been welcomed by businesses and individuals alike.
