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.
