Internet in Zimbabwe

ZPTC, contracted Global-One to establish a large scale national and International Internet backbone with a 256kbps link to the US and POPs in the four major cities. The service is operated as a wholesale facility for resale by the private ISPs.  I've included some links to these ISPs below.   Zimbabwe has a limited but slowly improving telephone network in general with some areas of severe problems (poor reliability and long waiting lists for lines).   Dialup accounts cost about US$40 for unlimited full-Internet access at most of the commercial service providers.  Mango's email accounts cost 20ZD / month + 0.15ZD / Kb sent or received.  Local calls cost about US$0.60/hour.  There are also Internet cafes in Zimbabwe such as Icafe (listed below).
