Telecel hasn’t launched anything in a while. In a very long while. They have been quiet in their corner while other companies released new stuff (in the case of NetOne) or complained about not being allowed to release new stuff (in Econet’s case).
So you can imagine our surprise and pleasure today when we received an email from Telecel today announcing the launch of new data bundles called MegaBoost. Pleasure because we think this is a really good deal for a lot of data users in Zimbabwe.
Essentially MegaBoost bundles are about providing affordable access to WhatsApp and the rest of the internet. Telecel are being particular here that in Zimbabwe, there’s WhatsApp and there’s everything else. And so MegaBoost has emphasis on making WhatsApp available. At least I think $5 for unlimited WhatsApp is a good deal.
here are some of the packages:
50 Cents Bundle $1 Bundle $2 Bundle $5 Bundle $10 Bundle
WhatsApp 5MB 30MB 60 MB Unlimited Unlimited
Rest of the Internet 20MB 50MB 150 MB 350 MB 1GB
