Is NetOne Internet Good?

This is a question that we are often asked by our readers. Truth of the matter is that, in our experience, NetOne has some of the best broadband that can be found in the country. In fact, we use NetOne data bundles to connect to the internet while writing these posts. The great thing is that NetOne gives you 50MB more data than Econet for daily data bundles. Even Netone’s weekly data bundle stands at 111MB of data, whereas that from Econet only gets you 35 MBs of data.

  1. Netone Internet is one of the worse to connect in the world. Extremely poor. Most of the time you cannot connect despite having the correct settings. Econet is the best when connecting to mobile Internet.

    • Perhaps. I personally use NetOne. I have an LTE tablet. At home, I simply buy bundles and then use the tablet as a WiFi hotspot. This allows me to get internet on my laptop. I do have to say 4G connectivity is generally good. In fact, I have no complaint’s other than that data is becoming expensive. I sometimes switch to Econet, but that’s even more expensive. But performance wise, I havent noticed a difference between the 2.
