Hardly two weeks after increasing their Data and SMS tariffs by more than 100%, Econet has pulled yet another shocker by announcing that it will issue another review of its prices on data and short message services (SMS), leaving many to wonder whether the review will be an upward or downward review.

This will be the second time in August 2019 alone when Econet will be reviewing its tariffs on data and SMSs after it last increased its tariffs a few weeks ago by more than 100 percent.


The tariff review message, which has been issued today, 28 August 2019 reads;

“Dear Customer. Please take note bundle prices for Data and SMS will be reviewed effectively 29 August 2019. Dial *143# or *151# to buy Data or *140# to buy SMS bundles”.

This leaves several customers wondering whether the tariff review will be to hike or reduce the prices and so many hoping it will be a downward review.
