Supa Mandiwanzira suspends "astronomical " mobile data price increase

In a press statement released on his Twitter account, Minister of ICT, Supa Mandiwanzira has suspended the mobile data price increase which was implemeted by Econet Wireless.  This follows a Potraz directive which set floor charges for data and voice.

In the  statement Supa says:

In the last few minutes, I have conversed with the Potraz Chairman and with the kind permission of the Acting Minister of ICT, Postal & Courier Services, Cde Prisca Mupfumira, I have directed an immediate suspension of the tariff increases that were effected two days ago, to the dismay of many mobile phone users.

…I share and sympathise with concerns expressed by a multitude of Zimbabwean internet  users that the recently effected data prices are unparalleled and extortionist.

…Given the astronomical rates that have been charged over the last two days, it may be necessary and morally correct to get the concerned mobile networks to refund their subscribers.
