Which ISP offers affordable data?

In a time when internet needs have reached almost starvation levels, affordable data has fast become a necessity. It is arguable that affordable data is what everybody now needs in Zambia. Data bundles and packages across the telecoms vary in-considerably with K10 to K20 differences here and there.

This article does not provide speed comparisons because that is an article for another day. Instead, this article compares 5 Internet Service Providers which offer 4G connectivity on their network. These packages are being marketed as Home or SME bundles respectively.

The lowest data offer is the 10GB, where Zamtel and Airtel offer the lowest price. Hai Telecom is the exception in this category as it starts at 15GB.

MTN (the prices shown via the link are different compared to dialing *335#) and Zamtel do not provide 15GB data. Hai and Vodafone offer 15GB data at K390 while Airtel offers it at K350.

As seen, the maximum data offer from all 5 ISPs is capped at 100GB. The prices differ quite insignificantly across the board except when it comes to the 50GB and 100GB. There is a difference of K999 between Vodafone’s 100GB offer and Zamtel’s offer. That is almost a full K1,000 difference!!!

Thoughts anyone?

There you have it, hopefully this breakdown gives you a clearer picture on which data package to go for.

Share your thoughts below on which ISP you think offers affordable and reliable data. We would love to hear from you!
