Econet Wireless Zimbabwe has clarified on its new voice tariffs saying that there was a typographical error in the communication that it sent out initially.

The mobile network operator had put a figure of RTGS $0.038 per second which translated to a whopping RTGS $2.28 for every minute making it very pricey indeed. However, it has since come out and clarified saying that zero was left out by accident and that the figure should, in fact, have been RTGS $0.0038 per minute. This translates to RTGS $0.228 (22.8 RTGS Cents).

‘We apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused,” said Econet.
