Well Telecel has been enjoying the cheapest cross network rates and I saw a number of people buying Telecel lines. In fact, Telecel hasd become my primary line of late as I am using it more and more.
(Aside: We don’t know what will happen of Telecel since Orascom reps are in the country and they said that, Telecel Zimbabwe is producing insignificant earnings to the whole group. )
However, broadband survey results aside, my journey with Telecel is dropping quite a bit in terms of excitement. Yes, when I started using the Telecel line, I saw some really sterling speeds and call quality. But of late, the speeds are no longer up to scratch. I have more times stared at my browser struggling to load facebook, even when using data compresion software like Onavo and Opear Mini.
I suspect the huge numbers swelling the Telecel Network may be the cause. I have also started seeing the message “call failed” a lot these days and some “Operation failed” when checking my data bundles.
Of cause the survey pointed out that the Telecel network is faster but I think it captured “a moment in time” when Telecel, due to some circumstances was ahead of them all.
Even comments from the newsday article showed that the survey did not convey a true result on the ground.
Some people commented as such:
How true is the survey?i´’ve been using telecel&econet for smetime,compared to the two ~hayi bo econet´s more faster than telecel.
Econet is the fastest dont lie guys l hve the telecel line its only good on bonus airtime,zve internet kanganwai

Once used econet but now i’”m using telecel because of promotions. In my opinion econet is much faster and stable.
Ita mushe munyori telecel yakadhakwa painternet and it bills you incorrectly.I only use telecel to make international calls and to take advantage of the bonus but not for internet use.I use Econet for internet because its fast and more reliable
