Netone Respond To The Artificial Shortage Of Sim Cards

By Faith Chimutsa

NetOne Cellular (Private) Limited has vehemently dismissed social media report that it has run out of mobile sim cards, saying there’re available on the market

The wireless mobile giant Chief Executive Officer, Raphael Mushanawani, yesterday said NetOne SIM cards are readily available throughout their distribution channels and customers can purchase new SIM cards or replace them at any of their channels including NetOne Shops, Zimpost outlets and authorised dealers.

He added that the NetOne SIM card official price is US$1 or ZWL equivalent at the interbank rate and noted with concern the outcry by its valued customers of dubious agents who are selling Sim Cards as high as US$4.
