Africom Offers Free WhatsApp With Its WiFi Product

WiFi is the name of the game right now and Africom want a bit of that action.


The pricing is interesting.

50c for 35MB,  $1 for 70MB, $3 for 225MB then $6 for 6GB. The last bit interests us.

And then to top it all off. They say you get Free WhatsApp access when you log onto their WiFi.

Where it is found is also curious because they have targeted highly populated areas and gated communities.

The areas where it is currently available are:

Africom Shops:

Stanley House, along Jason Moyo Avenue
Club Chambers, along Nelson Mandela Avenue
Shop 3-4, Long Chen Plaza, along Samora Machel, Belvedere

Should get things in the mix proper with more paid-for WiFi services available.

Always good to have options.

Mind you, someone needs to go after Bulawayo. So little public WiFi access there.
