The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (POTRAZ) is planning to cut mobile data rates from $0.125 per MB to $0.05 per MB from 1 July.

According to a report from ITWeb Africa, POTRAZ says the exercise is aimed at updating the Long Run Incremental Costing (LRIC) model implemented in 2014 to factor in ‘changing consumer behaviour which is moving from being voice-centric to being data-centric’, as well as technological advancements. Mobile data accounts for approximately 90% of internet access in Zimbabwe.
