Four Southern African countries — Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana have recently announced plans to trim down the bilateral roaming charges between themselves. Initially, the plan was led by CRAN, the Communications Regulatory Authority of Namibia.
With this move, it is expected that people moving to and fro these four nations would benefit with cheaper call rates. The data roaming charges were high as compared to what it should have been, which was definitely bothering the common people to a great extent of numerous complaints over the past few month.
Although the entire roaming charges reduction plan is in its nascent stage, the telecommunication companies in Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana are planning relevant products to boost communications as well as revenue generation.
