Zimbabwean operators ask Potraz to permit another price rise

Wednesday 3 June 2020 | 11:13 CET | News
Operators have approached the Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz) for another upward review of tariffs, The Herald reported. In March, Potraz approved an increase but continued currency depreciation and inflationary pressures have pushed up operating costs. According to sources, operators have lobbied Potraz since April for tariff increases of between 150 percent and 250 percent but the regulator is still considering affordability for subscribers.
