Zimbabwe is a good choice for starting a VoIP traffic termination business. The rate is high in this direction, ($0.15 per minute), while the connection inside is cheap. It is possible to provide a stable Internet connection for the normal operation of gateways (DSL networks and fiber are available in the country). All we need is to choose the best Internet plan to minimize business expenses.
The most popular Internet service providers in Zimbabwe are ZOL Zimbabwe, Telecel, Econet Wireless. Let's discuss the connection offers from ZOL Zimbabwe in order to figure out what Internet tariffs are applicable in the country.
Provider ZOL Zimbabwe offers several options for connecting to the Internet, including VSAT, fiber. For termination, it is better to choose fiber-optic Internet, because it is stable, which is very important for good calls statistics. The connection offer for fiber optics is called Fibroniks and includes several tariff plans:
- Fibroniks Zoom. Speed - up to 10 Mbps, the data consumption limit is 10 Gb. Price - $98 a month.
- Fibroniks Lite. Speed - up to 10 Mbps, the data consumption limit is 40 Gb. Price - $267 a month.
- Fibroniks Basic Essentials. Speed - up to 50 Mbps, the data consumption limit is 10 Gb. Price - $358.5 a month.
- Fibroniks Family Essentials. Speed - up to 100 Mbps, the data consumption limit is 10 Gb. Price - $818 a month.
For termination, Fibroniks Zoom would be the most suitable solution. A speed of 10 Mbps is enough for uninterruptible operation of the gsm gateway dual sim. As you can see, the Internet is quite expensive in Zimbabwe, but with revenues of $200 or more from each equipment port, monthly costs of $98 are quite acceptable.
