Early last month Utande launched an LTE service to rival those offered by ZOL and TelOne. The only difference between Utande’s packages and the rest of the market is that they are uncapped only. When it comes to prices, Utande LTE packages were comparable to ZOL’s business offerings.

And it seems like the internet service provider was listening because Utande has announced that it has slashed prices for its LTE packages by about 18% across the board.

The fact that Utande did so after listening to its clients and maybe also understanding that people are strapped for cash but need the internet is, I think, a sign that there is hope yet for Zimbabwean businesses.
All Utande needs to do now is roll out the capped packages
What we are all waiting for now are the capped packeges to see where exactly Utande ranks against ZOL Wibroniks and TelOne Blaze. A month ago we asked Utande/Dandemutande’s CEO, Never Ncube about the capped packages as well as what the company has in store for the future. You can listen to that conversation with the link below.
