Growth in Zimbabwe's mobile market has been hampered by the poor economic climate, exacerbated by taxes and recent measures affecting tariffs on calls and SMS services. The regulator has also proposed a ceiling price for voice and data bundles. Although these burdens have placed greater pressure on network operators, revenue grew by almost 33% in 2018.

The sale of the financially troubled Telecel Zimbabwe was completed in mid-2016, with the government now owing the company through its ISP Zarnet. Organisational changes within the company have caused havoc, leading many subscribers to churn to the other two providers. The government also owns a 60% stake in NetOne, though it has considered merging the operator with its sister company TelOne and selling a majority stake to an international investor in a bid to revitalise the market.

  • Regulator preps for 100 new base stations for rural areas;
