MultiChoice makes waves in the fibre internet market.
By Lehlohonolo Lehana.
Multichoice is aggressively entering the fibre internet market by bringing both DStv and internet into its own uncapped fibre products offering at heavily discounted prices.
DStv Internet via fibre gives customers an uncapped fibre connection, access to more streaming, and more entertainment.
The accessible, high-speed offering is positioned to give consumers peace of mind. DStv Internet via fibre guarantees customers faster, smoother, and more stable internet access. Users can expect enhanced gaming, social media, and browsing experiences; all while streaming the best content using the DStv Streama TV Box.
The new TV box (called the DStv Streama) delivers content from DStv and other streaming services through a reliable internet connection. Compatible devices are turned into smart TVs, granting users access to a bigger world of entertainment.
In an era of wide-reaching digital services, DStv is streamlining processes, ensuring that customers and their households are connected to the internet without the admin of paying multiple bills. The DStv Internet via fibre package gives customers more of their favourite content, but that’s not the only benefit.
The Total Package
DStv Internet via fibre currently houses two products; one that bundles the DStv Compact bouquet and another that offers the top-end Premium bouquet:
- Aggressively priced at R699 for a fixed 24-month period, the first fibre bundle offers 25Mbps/10Mbps uncapped fibre and router, with a DStv Streama TV box and a DStv Compact subscription.
- The second fibre bundle also offers 25Mbps/10Mbps uncapped fibre and router, including a DStv Streama box and DStv Premium for R999/month on a 24-month contract.
In both instances, consumers who supply their own decoder get satellite TV included at the same price.
According to the Digital Quality of Life Index 2021, South Africa is ranked 68th out of 110 countries, which is the highest ranking in comparison to its African counterparts. Although many South Africans enjoy access to mobile and broadband with relative stability, there is a long way to go in fully bridging the digital divide.
The attainability of DStv Internet via fibre is seen through customers like Zakhele, a 28-year-old retail manager, who shares a house in Cosmo City with three friends. "There are some things we like to do together like stream a soccer match, whilst other times, I just prefer browsing the net in my own personal space. Having this uncapped fibre and subscription at one price not only means saving, but that we all get to do what we like," he said.
