Internet service providers increase internet prices as Govt implements 5% tax on internet and airtime
Government has finally implemented the 5% Health Levy proposed by Minister of Finance, Patrick Chinamasa in last year’s budget presentation, with an amendment to the Finance Act (No. 2) 2017, Section 31(49). The government is backdating the application of this tax to January 2017.
Internet providers have increased tariffs and have already started communicating the tariff change. A customer of Liquid Telecom sent Techzim the letter they received from the fibre company where they are advising customers that the tariff will now be increased.
