WHILE there has been a public outcry following a steep increase in mobile data tariffs in the country, the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (POTRAZ) has revealed Zimbabwe has relatively cheaper rates by regional standards.

POTRAZ director general Gift Machengete told the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Information Communication Technology on Monday that the perception that Zimbabwean rates were expensive is wrong.

Machengete gave examples of data tariffs in South Africa which charges US$0.01 cents, Eswatini US$0.05, Botswana US$0.09, and Mozambique US$0.13 compared to Zimbabwe whose tariffs are currently pegged at US$0.02.
