Econet Zimbabwe didn't have such a good run with the company's revenue dropping to $40 million this year from $70 million last year even though its subscriber base grew from 9.2 million to 10 million.

Media reports reveal that voice revenue dropped from 64% to 56% of total revenue. Broadband revenue grew from $10 million to $113 million, adding a total of 18% to total group revenue.

According to Econet, the reduction revenue was as a result of the regulatory price reductions and increased levies as well as the deterioration in the economic environment.
