Zimbabwe has the third most expensive mobile data in Africa

Zimbabwe has the third most expensive monthly mobile data in Africa behind South Sudan and Swaziland according to the latest report from Techzim.

It said a survey of 47 African countries showed that 1GB of data in Zimbabwe cost $30 a month while Swaziland was 33 cents more expensive and South Sudan three times more expensive at $90.83.

The cheapest 1GB of data is available in Tanzania at only 89 US cents, followed by Egypt  at $2.82 and Mozambique US$2.87.

Zimbabwe’s mobile phone companies sell cheaper data with 1GB costing only $2 but one has to use it in 24 hours.

Some better packages were scrapped recently when the regulatory authority cancelled promotions to curb the use of social media for activism.
