Telecel introduces WhatsApp Bundles to Zimbabwe


Zimbabwean operator Telecel is introducing WhatsApp Bundles to allow subscribers to chat and share videos, voice notes and files with anyone on any network without having to worry about running out of data.

To purchase the bundles, subscribers dial *480# or SMS the letter ‘W’ to 33480. The bundles are available for both pre-paid and post paid subscribers.

There are three WhatsApp Bundles that can be purchased. The daily bundle, which costs 29 cents, gives subscribers access to WhatsApp for 24 hours.

The weekly bundle, which is valid for seven days, costs 89 cents. In addition to access to WhatsApp for a week, it gives the subscriber 5MB of bonus data for the first 1 000 subscribers who sign up for this bundle.

The monthly bundle, which costs $2.85 and is valid for 30 days, comes with 20 MB of bonus data for the first 500 subscribers who sign up.

“The WhatsApp bundles allow unlimited messaging. Subscribers can chat, send videos and share voice notes without having to worry about running out of data. Even if the ordinary data has been used up, it will still be possible to use WhatsApp”, said Telecel marketing Director Octivius Kahiya.
